I've been meaning to commend you for all the tagging you've done to Anglican resources. It used to be horrible. However, I just discovered you have a few things left to do:

I suspect he was probably just as Anglican when he wrote his other books.Smile (And which one is it that doesn't qualify as Episcopalian?)

You're right.  One of the things need to do (and decide) is whether we actually need three categories.Tongue Tied  I think the plan is to eliminate the two separate categories for the combined.Big Smile

Good point ... I'm really trying hard not to crack a few Anglican jokes here. Angel

MJ wondered the same thing a couple of hours ago: http://community.logos.com/forums/p/71607/498680.aspx#498680.

Agreed (though if it was me I'd keep the 'Anglican' -- but then I'm not Anglican.) But it will ruin your 'status' in MJ's chart: http://community.logos.com/forums/p/71607/498475.aspx#498475Big Smile

Also, I think my number should be modified to include the number people who read N.T.Wright.

I simply make my preferred resources ACELO churches (Anglican, Catholic, Eastern, Lutheran, Orthodox). I'd be perfectly happy to have the three of you (Andrew, Gabe, Ben) divide up the work however you want ... just make sure we all know it's out there.

I just realized that when collections are broken up, they aren't automatically tagged the same as their collection ... I need to fix that.

That wouldn't be such a good idea. A collection can be tagged as Anglican or Catholic because there is one book with an Anglican or Catholic author in it.

He seems to be doing a better job of adding you to his.Geeked A number of your Orthodox books have been written by Anglicans.Big Smile

I think he'd have to compete with CS Lewis for that title.

Yes, that was kind of why I started the thread.Wink I bet you wish you'd taken that decision about Anglican/Episcopal before you did all the tagging you've already done.Big Smile
