The Most Rev. Peter D. Robinson has been named Episcopal Patron of the Anglican Bible and Book Society. Archbishop Robinson is the presiding bishop of the United Episcopal Church of North America (UECNA) and bishop of the UECNA’s Missionary District of the West. He also serves as rector of St. Paul’s Anglican Church in Prescott, Arizona.
The Society’s Board of Directors is pleased with Archbishop Robinson’s decision to serve in this capacity. The organization’s president Father Daniel Sparks said, “We’re very happy that Bishop Robinson will be providing the Society with pastoral counsel and accountability as our patron. The bishop has a firm grasp on the Christian faith and Anglicanism, and I believe he is a perfect fit for the Society. He understands and supports our mission of strengthening the Church.”
As Episcopal Patron, Archbishop Robinson will provide episcopal review and advice on matters of doctrine and morals, give counsel on pastoral concerns that may arise in the Society’s work, and serve as a spokesman for the Society in the broader Anglican community.
