White Horse Inn: Conversational Theology

The Anglican Tradition

For 30 years, White Horse Inn has hosted theological conversations among the heirs of the Reformation, exploring our shared history and defending a common set of convictions. But what are the differences we bring to the table? In this episode of our new series, “Different, Not Divided,” Michael Horton sits down with Justin Holcomb to learn about the Anglican tradition—its history, confession, and polity, and what led Holcomb to be ordained as an Anglican minister. He shares some of the challenges within the Anglican tradition while also celebrating its global reach, commitment to Scripture, and application of the gospel through Thomas Cranmer’s “comfortable words.”

On This Episode:

  • Michael Horton is White Horse Inn’s founder and co-host. In addition to serving as a J. Gresham Machen Professor of Systematic Theology and Apologetics at Westminster Seminary California, he is a minister in the United Reformed Churches. He is the author of more than 30 books.
