Anglican Evangelicals on Personal and Social Ethics

Jeffrey P. Greenman

DOWNLOAD COMPLETE ARTICLE PDF

Anglican evangelicals over the past three hundred years have given significant attention to addressing moral, social, and political concerns. Scholars have often overlooked the contributions made by evangelicals in presenting a biblically-oriented, Christ-centered, and publicly-engaged vision of the moral life. This essay analyzes the approaches taken by leading voices in this strand of Anglicanism by exploring the work of Henry Venn, William Wilberforce, J. C. Ryle, David Gitari, and N. T. Wright. By looking for persistent patterns in their moral thought, this essay offers an introduction to the contributions made by evangelicals to personal and social ethics. It concludes by calling for Anglicanism’s conservative moral voices to contribute to contemporary ethical debates with “convicted civility.”
