Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Although Samuel Seabury is not an instantly recognizable name today, he was the pioneering figure in adapting Anglicanism to the American way of life in the touchy days after the Revolutionary War, when any sort of sympathy to the Union Jack was considered unpatriotic. Many of the reasons that Episcopalians are slightly different from Anglicans in liturgy and outlook can be traced to Seabury, the first Episcopal bishop in America. Marshall, an Episcopal bishop himself, used to teach liturgics at Yale Divinity School, so he brings to this academic biography a keen sensitivity for a maverick fellow bishop as well as an obvious love for the sacraments and the Book of Common Prayer. He ably chronicles Seabury's dedication, exhausting work and willingness to withstand personal criticism as he carried out his vision. One unusual aspect of this book is that it comes with an accompanying CD-ROM containing Seabury's correspondence, some relevant historical documents and other primary sources.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By C. Scott on January 4, 2008
Format: Hardcover
Episcopalians trying to reach an understanding of theological issues in the American church today might find this study very enlightening, as I do. I find Bp Marshall's careful and thorough use of available documents very persuasive in his estimate of Seabury's character and churchmanship. There was no "Jesus seminar" in Seabury's day, but there were non-Trinitarian clergy in the early American church who tried to make the liturgy more Unitarian, more "Arian" (through the elimination of the creeds,through minimal prayers to Christ and to the Holy Spirit, for example) in short, whose Christology is what conservatives in TEC fear is implied by current leadership in the national church when it fails to recognize those issues as serious. Marshall shows that Seabury consistently and successfully worked to counteract that influence in his own day, while exercising his very considerable pastoral duties, and always putting charity first.

4 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Dr. Gavin White on November 30, 2007
Format: Hardcover
I found this book fascinating - -but the subject is not likely to matter to any but a few readers. On liturgy in the early Episcopal Church, Marshaall is interesting and gives solid references, but on Seabury's place in history, and the effect on subsequent consecrations of bishops, Marshall has not done adequate research and his conclusions are questionable. Finally, he is too concerned to protect Seabury's reputation against his critics, Steiner and Hatchett, neither of whom was all that critical of Seabury, though they may have missed some of the essential facts on liturgy.
