In Support of an Anglican Evangelical Newspaper
I would like to respond to David Flemings’s letter in EC 8098.
David is concerned that the English Churchman under its new
Editor has become ultra-Anglican. I have been reading English
Churchman for 25 years now and yes it was general Conservative
Evangelical with an Anglican dimension and now it has become an
Anglican evangelical newspaper. However, l would suggest in these
days there is a crying need for an Anglican Evangelical newspaper.
Church of England Newspaper is confused and Church Times is not
There needs to be a media focal point for Anglican Evangelicals to
earnestly contend for the faith inside and outside the National Church
and to be informed. We should support that, previous revivals in
England, even the last one in the 1920s in East Anglia have always
included the Church of England.
For those of us outside the National Church as well as English Churchman,
there is British Church Newspaper, Evangelicals Now, and the superb
Evangelical Times. Surely Anglican Evangelicals deserve their own newspaper.
