The Society of Anglican Theologians is an association of Anglican ordained and lay academic theologians in submission to the College of Bishops of the Anglican Church in North America. The Society is dedicated to the encouragement of Anglican theological scholarship, and the recruitment and formation of Anglican theologians from the array of theological disciplines (biblical, dogmatic, historical, moral, and practical) and related disciplines (e.g., philosophy). The Society is oriented by four aims: 1) encouragement and exhortation of its members in teaching, publication, progress in holiness, and the advancement of orthodox Anglican theological scholarship; 2) service to and resourcing of bishops and others involved in official inter-Anglican and ecumenical initiatives; 3) development of theological perspectives on the doctrine and discipline of the ACNA, as requested by the College of Bishops and other committees within the ACNA; 4) revival of the “scholar-clergy” vocation and the development of lay catechists in the ACNA, both of whom contribute to the enhancement of parish-based catechesis.[i]
