Welcome to St. Peter Publications
Please note our email address: office@stpeter.org

Updated information as of September, 2013

St. Peter Publications is pleased to offer a range of Christian reading and other material that is orthodox in content, and which is Canadian and Anglican in perspective.

Our wide-ranging variety of literature includes the annual reports and brochures of the Atlantic Theological Conferences, as well as "A Canadian Church Calendar" (based on the Book of Common Prayer - 1962), and many other booklets & pamphlets, as presented in our detailed Catalogue. From 1984 until the end of 2006, we published "The Anglican Free Press", a quarterly journal, which described itself as 'A Faithful Watchman, Messenger and Steward of the Lord'. The AFP endeavoured to look at the contemporary Church from the orthodox point of view of classical Anglican Christianity, with the intention of being a voice for the renewal of traditional faith in the Canadian Church. In 2005, we partnered with the "Anglican Planet Project" to begin the publication of a new monthly periodical, 'The Anglican Planet'.
        Please note: Some copies of back issues of the Anglican Free Press are available on request, and some articles and editorials from back issues are available here through the AFP link on this website.
        This link contains the Editorial that was printed in the final AFP, as well as the message from the Chairman of the Board of St. Peter Publications.

Our publications address the important concerns and controversies facing the church today, including theological innovations, liturgical reform, Christian morality, the challenge of secularity, re-evangelizing of the Church, and other issues of faith. St. Peter Publications gives voice to a living Catholic and evangelical tradition within our contemporary Anglican Church, working for renewal as we move forward in this new century and new Millennium.

Our website also includes publications by Fr. John Pearce, many links to religious sites relating to classical Christianity, the Anglican Way, as well as other perspectives. Thus we hope to uphold and articulate the 'faith once delivered to the saints', proclaiming the undiluted good news of God's love in Jesus Christ our Lord.

St. Peter Publications is also pleased to be an agent for the sale of the three-book series, "Discovering the Book of Common Prayer", written by Sue Careless, and published originally as a project of the Prayer Book Society of Canada.

"The New Atheism"

Book Cover, 2012 Conference Book The 2012 Atlantic Theological Conference was held in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island. (This was the 32nd annual conference). The topic was "The New Atheism". We hope that the papers presented at the conference and found in this volume will prove to be helpful in our understanding of Scripture, as well as providing a useful response to the arguments and assertions of the New Atheists. As Dr. Gary Thorne says in his paper: "The New Atheists challenge us to see the importance of our modern view of Scripture. Generally speaking, we have lost the hermeneutic that allows the Scripture to speak to us of the supernatural, and to transform our lives. We read the Bible in a one-dimensional, naturalistic and scientific way that either makes us Fundamentalists or causes us to reject the Bible as outdated and inadequate."

Christian Psychology: The Formation of Souls

Book Cover, 2008 Conference Book The topic of the 2008 Atlantic Theological Conference held in Halifax, Nova Scotia, was "Christian Psychology: The Formation of Souls". The thought-provoking papers given at that conference and included in this volume are offered in thanksgiving for the seminal and ongoing contribution to these conferences of The Rev'd Dr. Robert Crouse. His papers, and also his presence, have provided an abiding inspiration and encouragement to those in attendance over the years. Here we let him speak for himself: "Paradise is only possible if the soul is 'transhumanized'... only if if the intellect is enabled by faith to fix its vision upon the eternal Good; only if the will is strengthened by hope to pursue that Good; only if the powers of the soul are united in that eternal Charity, that divine 'amor' which moves the sun and the other stars." (page 120 of this volume).

Justification and Sanctification

Book Cover, 2007 Conference Book The papers delivered at the 27th Annual Atlantic Theological Conference are contained in this book. The conference was held in Fredericton, New Brunswick, in May of 2007. The book includes papers presented by The Rev' Dr. Robert Crouse, Dr. Anthony Esolen, The Rev'd Dr. Roger Beckwith, Dr. Paul Epstein, and The Rev'd Dr. Peter Toon. At the conference, these five speakers addressed the subject of Justification and Sanctification, exploring the topic from a number of perspectives. The papers presented include "Justification and Sanctification in the Thought of St. Paul and St. Augustine", "Sanctification in Dante's Purgatorio", "A Reformation Account of Justification and Sanctification" and "Justification by Faith and Dynamic Equivalency: Pauline doctrine and the contemporary church". Within the opening pages of his paper, Dr. Robert Crouse poses questions with which the ensuing papers all in one way or another grapple:
         "Are we justified simply by God's merciful decree, in view of the infinite merit of Christ's sacrifice, or does our justification also imply some working of righteousness in our souls, whereby we freely co-operate in God's work for our salvation? In other words, is God's gift of justification simply declarative, or is it also creative? Is God's righteousness simply imparted to us for Christ's sake, or is his righteousness in some way imparted to us as we live in Christ? Are we merely accounted just, or are we actually made just? And are those really alternatives?" (page 1)
