Morgan Donn

This course studies the ways the Bible has been received and has functioned in Anglicanism from the English Reformation to the present day. A dialogue between community and text that occurs in all scriptural communities of faith is a major focus. Both the Bible and the church are powerful shaping agents in this dialogue. The course traces the history of the Bible’s roles in Anglicanism, focusing on issues and concerns central to identity and mission. Examining ways in which the Bible has influenced and shaped worship and music, polity, evangelism, and theology will help refine and sharpen a focus on the Anglican community-text dialogue.
