Bishop Paul Marshall's study of Samuel Seabury and the events surrounding the writing of the 1789 Book of. .

Bishop Paul Marshall's study of Samuel Seabury and the events surrounding the writing of the 1789 Book of Common Prayer is a blending of biography and liturgical studies. Unfortunately, the blend does not work well. The advocacy that lends passion to his liturgical scholarship distorts his historical statements. The blend leaves him with no clear audience. Marshall is persuasive that Seabury had a good grasp of the theology involved in the liturgical discussions and worked consistently to move Americans towards the sacramental understandings of the Scottish church. The 1789 Book of Common Prayer, not surprisingly, is a compromise document.

In addition, the Apostolic Episcopal Church has absorbed a number of other churches that mainly derive from Orthodox missions. Since February 2015, when the Prince-Abbot of San Luigi also succeeded as Primate of the AEC, the Apostolic Episcopal Church has been held in personal union with the Abbey-Principality of San Luigi.

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.

He then turned to the Scottish Episcopal Church

He then turned to the Scottish Episcopal Church. At that time, the Episcopalians in Scotland were not the established church; they were a legally recognized but oppressed church which refused to recognize the Hanoverian kings. Earlier scandal had been caused by the presence of two non-juring bishops in America in the 1720s (John Talbot and Robert Welton) who were removed from their positions after being accused of schism in the Church of England in America. Seabury was consecrated bishop by Robert Kilgour, Bishop of Aberdeen and Primus of Scotland; Arthur Petrie, Bishop of Ross and Moray; and John Skinner, coadjutor bishop of Aberdeen.

Like my Catholic parish, this church is thriving, filled with young and old from a variety of backgrounds. There are cradle Episcopalians, ex-evangelicals who found life in the beauty of Episcopal liturgy and disaffected Roman Catholics. Because this is my family’s parish, I know these parishioners more deeply than the ones at my Catholic parish. My children play with their children, and our families regularly hang out together.

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. (includes CD-ROM appendix.)

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.

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.
