This study examines the Bible as a public document in the matrix of Anglican history and theology. It argues that the early Church of England raised the public profile of the Bible, even if with some consternation. It also points out that the Bible's imprint on the Anglican liturgy ensures that the Bible continues to have public import in the Australian context. Finally, it contends that the distinctively Anglican approach to interpreting the Bible is conducive to public theology.
