This workshop explores Thomas Cranmer’s deepest convictions, as can be seen in the Forty-Two Articles of 1553. Cranmer believed his Bible. For him the Word of God written was the supreme authority in all matters of religious controversy. The Forty-Two Articles reflect this conviction. It also evidences another of Cranmer’s deepest convictions: The Bible contains all things necessary for salvation. His Anglicanism was both Bible-centric and gospel-centric. Wherever these twin convictions inform Anglicanism today, there is life. Wherever they are abandoned, there is only spiritual decline. Of course, this is not only true of Anglicanism.
