The Accidental Anglican

The Surprising Appeal Of The Liturgical Church
By Todd D Hunter
ISBN: 9781844745081
Available in 72 hours
Many are longing for historical connectedness and for theology that is 'not tied to the whims of contemporary culture, but to apostolic-era understandings of Christian faith and practice.' They also yearn for rhythms and routines that build spiritual health. Still others are responding to a call to participate in worship rather than merely sitting back and looking at a stage. Liturgy offers all of this and more. Todd D. Hunter bucked the trend by joining the Anglican church. He traces his remarkable journey from an upbringing in the Jesus Movement, to spearheading Vineyard ministries in the US, through heading up Alpha USA and now embracing a liturgical church, where he is now bishop. His compelling story is told with humility and humour.

Press Reviews

Todd's story is a fascinating, moving, honest and often very funny account of what God can do with one of his servants committed to growing his kingdom today . . . very inspiring.

- Sandy Millar, vicar, Tollington Park, and assistant bishop, London

'Todd Hunter's journey - unlike that of the 1980s 'evangelicals on the Canterbury Trail' - is a missional merging of Anglican resources and church-planting passion. Free of romanticized illusions, he offers a clear-eyed appreciation of the Anglican potential for mission after modernity.'

- David Neff, editor-in-chief, Christianity Today

'One part autobiography and one part apologia, this book provides an 'outsider's' perspective on the richness of authentic Anglicanism, and the treasures of this particular branch of the Christian church that have captured his heart.'

- The Right Reverend Chuck Murphy, Chairman, The Anglican Mission
