The Global Anglican Communion

Contending for Anglicanism 1993-2018


The book, written by the Rev. Dr. Stephen Noll, theologian, educator and missionary, shows how important matters of basic Christian doctrine came into play in the Episcopal Church and later in the wider Anglican Communion. It narrates the historical conflict between the West and the Global South at the 1998 Lambeth Conference, and at the 2008 Global Anglican Future Conference in Jerusalem.

The volume contains twelve essays written Dr. Noll over twenty-five years: on “Bible, Marriage and Church”; “From Lambeth to Jerusalem”; and “Is There a Global Anglican Future?” It looks to the development of Global South Anglicanism with the hope of transformation through this “movement of the Spirit.”

Angels of Light, Powers of Darkness

Thinking Biblically About Angels, Satan and Principalities


Recent years have brought an unexpected revival of popular interest in angels. Books professing to draw back the curtain on the unseen angelic world filled entire bookstore shelves. But who are angels, and what is their nature and purpose in the biblical scheme of things? And what about the fallen angels, Satan, demons and the so-called “principalities and powers.”

Stephen Noll answers these questions in this detailed exploration of angels in the tapestry of Scripture. Here is a biblical-theological study that fills a significant gap and will command the attention of serious students of scripture.
