A New Anglican Difficulties

See this delightful conversation, at The Telegraph, Feb. 24, with Anglican canon chancellor Edward Norman, who will be joining the Catholic Church later this year:

"My new book is not actually a criticism of the Church of England," says Canon Edward Norman, chancellor of York Minster, choosing his words with donnish precision.
Is he serious? Two minutes later, he declares: "There is a big hole at the centre of Anglicanism — its authority. I don't think it's a Church; it's more of a religious society." This is the most hurtful criticism that one can make of any Church: to say that it is not a Church.
In fact, his book, Anglican Difficulties: A New Syllabus of Errors, is one of the most ferocious assaults ever launched on the Church of England. It is all the more deadly because its author is not a traditionalist quote-merchant, but a leading Church intellectual....

See John Henry Newman's "Anglican Difficulties":

(Thanks, Christopher.)
