Theological Education Resources

Throughout its life and work TEAC has had a particular interest and concern for improving the teaching of ‘The Anglican Way’ in theological education. Information about its work can be found in the department's report to the Anglican Consultative Council in 2019.

More resources will be added to the page during 2019.

Mission Theology in the Anglican Communion

TEAC is helping to prepare the Anglican Communion for the Lambeth Conference in 2020 by taking on and completing the Mission Theology in the Anglican  Communion project. This project has organised three intercontinental conferences of global South theologians.

TEAC is now publishing the conference books which are on the Archbishop of Canterbury’s three priorities of reconciliation, evangelism and the renewal of prayer and the religious life.  The first two books – on reconciliation and evangelism - were launched at ACC17 in Hong Kong in April 2019. The third - on the renewal of prayer and the religious life - is to be published in early 2020. The books are being published by the Anglican Communion Office and by Forward Movement in the United States.

The Bible in the Life of the Church

Bible in the Life of the Church or BILC seeks to help us engage more deeply with the Bible through gathering together a tool-box of educational resources. The contents of the tool-box come from all over the Anglican Communion and are designed to help everyone from provinces, dioceses, congregations, small groups and individuals deepen their understanding of the Bible.

Gender Justice study materials.

These study materials offer perspectives from a diverse international group of Anglican theologians and have been developed to make them suitable for adaptation to multiple contexts. Their reflections invite critique and conversation that is best undertaken within a respectful, theological community. It will be important to explore and contextualise the language and terminology used as part of the learning process.

Globethics Foundation

Colleges of the Anglican Communion have membership of the Globethics Foundation through the Anglican Consultative Council. The online library has more than 10,000 theological texts free to download. The Foundation can also provide online facilitation for workgroups and online teaching tools.

Bibliographies of books on Anglican Studies

There are two bibliographies available of key books on Anglican studies.

  • A booklist of key texts on Anglican Studies which TEAC believes should be in the library of all theological institutions training people for the ordained Anglican ministry.
  • A booklist designed with lay people in mind.

 

Web resources

On the Project Canterbury website http://anglicanhistory.org/  you will find a wide range of references and resources linked to many figures in the history of Anglicanism.

Our page of theological resources also gives a number of references to helpful material linked to various aspects of Anglican studies e.g. liturgy, doctrine, history.
