“Anglican Women at Prayer”


Anglican Theological Review (ATR) has focused its Spring 2016 issue on “Anglican Women at Prayer” edited by Ruthanna B. Hooke, associate dean of chapel and associate professor of homiletics at Virginia Theological Seminary and Cynthia Briggs Kittredge, dean and president and professor of New Testament at Seminary of the Southwest.

Concluding the editors’ comments for this issue, Hooke and Kittredge write, “Like the ministry of the Anglican Theological Review itself, this volume witnesses to faithful theological reflection and practice across diverse cultures and contexts. The hidden, subversive force of the prayer of Anglican women weaves bonds of affection that connect these diverse contexts, and suggest ways that many voices can continue to be in dialogue both with each other, and with the God who is the source and end of our prayer.”

Lead articles in the issue are titled “The Sacred Thread Weaving Our Bonds of Affection” by Eleanor Ruth Sanderson; “Prayer as the Lifeline of Theology” by Marilyn McCord Adams; “Mothering Souls: A Vocation of Intercession” by Donyelle Charlotte McCray; and “A Passion for Intercessory Prayer: The Historic Vocation of the Society of the Companions of the Holy Cross” by Fredrica Harris Thompsett. All the articles are available through the electronic resource EBSCO at the Booher Library.

Anthony D. Baker, professor of systematic theology at Seminary of the Southwest is Editor in Chief of Anglican Theological Review. Dan Joslyn-Siemiatkoski, associate professor of church history, serves as faculty representative from this seminary to the ATR.
