Windsor, “Obedience and Submission in 1 Peter,” The Global Anglican 136/2 (2022): 126–144. Main headings: 1. Christians throughout the world accept the Bible as God’s authoritative word 2. “Obedience” and “submission” have big implications for relationships involving power and authority 3. “Obedience” and “submission” are often misunderstood when they’re rendered in modern English 4. “Postcolonial interpretation,” which tries to deal with the problems, ends up creating bigger problems
The Line in the Sand: The Appellate Tribunal Opinion and the Future of the Anglican Church in Australia
I’ve contributed an essay to a recent publication called The Line in the Sand that will be of special interest to Australian Anglicans, especially those involved in the forthcoming session of the General Synod.
History matters. It makes us question things we take for granted, it helps us to understand who we are, and it gives us a broader perspective on the issues we face today. One example – relevant for evangelical Anglicans, especially in Sydney – is an essay in Donald Robinson Selected Works, volume 4 (recently published by the Australian Church Record and Moore College). The essay is called “The Origins of the Anglican Church League” (pp. 125–52). It’s a republication of a paper given in 1976 by Donald Robinson (1922–2018), former Moore College Vice-Principal and later Archbishop of Sydney. In the paper, Robinson traces some of the currents and issues that led to the formation of the Anglican Church League in the early twentieth century. The essay is classic Donald Robinson: full of surprises, yet definitely still worth reading today to help us gain perspective on issues for evangelical Anglicans past and present.
