5.0 out of 5 stars A Fine Historical Exposition of the Articles, 24 Mar 2011
This review is from: An Exposition of the Thirty-Nine Articles V2: Historical and Doctrinal (Hardcover)
Browne does a fine job of demonstrating each article's relation to the ancient church providing many citations from the fathers that agree or seem to agree with the purport of the Articles as well the original intent of the English Reformers who drafted these Articles. Bishop Browne was something of an old High Churchman, one of the last of his kind, writing in the middle of the 19th century. He evinces a certain moderation typical of High Churchmen that is less polemical than that of the Tractarians or the Low Church Evangelicals of his day. He does a fine job of getting at what seemed to the Articles' original intent given their historical circumstances. There is also a section on the scriptural evidence for each article as well. Overall a very fine resource if you are interested in the context of the Articles, but still see Chadwick's "History of the Articles" for the most definitive description of how the Articles developed over time and the circumstances that shaped their wording.
