Reformation Anglican Worship by Jensen (Review)

Logos Academic: Bible Software That’s Not Just for Academics! (Review)

Logos Bible Software is an affiliate partner of Anglican Compass. I regularly recommend their software and resources because I think that they’re incredibly beneficial to anyone who wants to learn more about the Bible and Christian theology.

Do Anglicans even *care* about the Bible? 📖

Let’s take a look at what some of the foundational documents of Anglicanism have to say about the Bible! By the way, these Anglican “formularies” are: The Book of [...]
