The 39 Articles from a Reformed Perspective

The 39 Articles of Religion summarize the foundation of Anglican or Episcopal faith and practice. Penned by the early English reformers, the document summarizes the particular theology which differs from the Roman Catholic doctrine taught in the 16th century.

Though many Anglicans find themselves in the traditional or “Anglo-Catholic” camp of interpretation, a great number of evangelical or Reformed Christians appreciate the Protestant readings of the Articles as a way of engaging with the Reformation’s heritage.

Rev. Henry Jansma writes a helpful commentary on these articles from the Reformed perspective. Read more on “Meet the Puritans,” a blog hosted by the Alliance of Confessing Evangelicals. (After clicking the link, scroll to the end of the blog post for a table of contents.)
