Item Description...
This first new book on Bishop Seabury in more than a decade, "One, Catholic, and Apostolic: Samuel Seabury and the Early Episcopal Church" is a fascinating story of the first bishop in the Episcopal church. In 1783, Seabury was chosen by the clergy of Connecticut to seek ordination to the episcopate in England. After a year of negotiation, Seabury found it impossible to obtain Episcopal orders from the Church of England because, as an American citizen, he could not swear allegiance to the crown. He then turned to the non-juring bishops of the Episcopal church in Scotland and was ordained on November 14, 1784. As part of his negotiation with the Scottish bishops Seabury agreed to incorporate the Communion Service from the Scottish Prayer Book into a new American Prayer Book, thereby establishing a pivotal component in American Anglican Liturgy. When he returned to America, he was recognized as the first Bishop of Connecticut. Using Seabury's persona and thought as central themes, distinguished historian and Bishop of Bethlehem (PA) Paul Marshall argues that liturgy cannot be understood simply by studying texts, and so he explores the complex personalities, motivations, loyalties and prejudices that went into the formation of the Episcopal church and the creation of its liturgy. (300 pp Paperback, includes CD-ROM appendix.)

Reviews - What do our customers think?
helpful in understanding TEC controversies today  Jan 4, 2008
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.
Marshall opn Bishop Seabury  Nov 30, 2007
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.
