Pioneers of Modern Spirituality introduces four Anglicans Evelyn Underhill, Reginald Somerset Ward, Percy Dearmer, and Rose Macaulay each of whom was a significant influence in a revived interest in spirituality at a time when people were questioning institutional religion.

The Oxford History of Anglicanism, Volume V: Global Anglicanism, c. 1910-2000
The Oxford History of Anglicanism provides a global study of Anglicanism from the sixteenth century to the twenty-first. The five volumes in the series look at how Anglican identity was constructed and contested since the English Reformation of the sixteenth century, and examine its historical influence during the past six centuries. They consider not only the ecclesiastical and theological aspects of global Anglicanism, but also the political, social, economic, and cultural influences of this form of Christianity that has been historically significant in Western culture, and a burgeoning force in non-Western societies since the nineteenth century. Written by international experts in their various historical fields, each volumes analyses the varieties of Anglicanism that have emerged. The series also highlights the formal, political, institutional, and ecclesiastical forces that have shaped a global Anglicanism; and the interaction of Anglicanism with informal and external influences which have both moulded Anglicanism and been fashioned by it. Volume five of The Oxford History of Anglicanism considers the global experience of the Church of England in mission and in the transitions of its mission Churches toward autonomy in the twentieth century. The Church developed institutionally, yet more than the institutional history of the Church of England and its spheres of influence is probed. The contributors focus on what it has meant to be Anglican in diverse contexts. What spread from England was not simply a religious institution but the religious tradition it intended to implant. The volume addresses questions of the conduct of mission, its intended and unintended consequences. It offers important insights on what decolonization meant for Anglicans as the mission Church in various global locations became self-reliant. This study breaks new ground in describing the emergence of an Anglicanism shaped more contextually than externally. It illustrates how Anglicanism became enculturated across a broad swath of cultural contexts. The influence of context, and the challenge of adaptation to it, framed Anglicanism's twentieth-century experience.

Christ, the Christian, and the Church: A Study of the Incarnation and its Consequences
p>Inform your theology by delving into E. L. Mascall's discussion about the incarnation of the Son of God and its crucial connection to the individual and the church. /p> p> Indeed what has chiefly convinced me of the supreme significance of the doctrine of the permanence of Christ's manhood as the central principle of Christian theology has been the extent to which that doctrine has made it possible to get beneath-or should one rather say 'above'?-the either-or level, and to see the two contrasted elements as mutually involved in a synthesis in which one can say 'both-and.' /p> p>E. L. Mascall's i>Christ, the Christian, and the Church /i> explores how the incarnation of the Son of God is the unifying principle of our lives through subjects such as eschatology, ecclesiology, pneumatology, ascetical and mystical theology, and more. Instead of reinforcing the view that Christ's descent to earth was anthropocentric, Mascall explicates his point that it was in fact theocentric; man is woven into the godhead instead of the godhead into flesh, and our actions as Christians are actions of Christ himself because of the unifying act of baptism. With an impressive facility for primary and secondary sources and an adamant commitment to God, i>Christ, the Christian, and the Church /i> manages to be just as timely now as it was seventy years ago when it was initially published. /p>

Theological Radicalism and Tradition: 'The Limits of Radicalism' with Appendices
`The limits of radicalism are those which end not in chaos but in the breaking of fresh ground.' Howard E. Root Previously unpublished--and only recently rediscovered by Dr Christopher R. Brewer in an uncatalogued box in the archives of Lambeth Palace Library--Canon Howard E. Root's 1972 Bampton Lectures, `The Limits of Radicalism', have to do with nothing less than `what theology is', a topic no less relevant today than it was in 1972. Against the radical reductionism of his time, Root defended the integrity of theology and `theological truth'. Advocating a `backward-looking' radicalism, he thought that tradition should display `recognisable continuity', and yet at the same time--against reductionistic tendencies--that it might be enriched and enlarged via a wide variety of `additive imagery' including, though not limited to, poetry and pop art, music and even television. We must `begin where we are', said Root, for we cannot, in the manner of Leonard Hodgson, `think ourselves into the minds and feelings of men 2000 years ago.' In this volume, which begins with a substantial, mostly biographical introduction, Dr Brewer argues that Root--a backward-looking radical who defended metaphysics and natural theology, and insisted that theologians look to the arts as theological resources--anticipates the work of David Brown and others concerned with tradition and imagination, relevance and truth. A fascinating glimpse into the recent history of British Christianity, Root's lectures, as well as the related appendices, are essential reading for theologians interested in the dynamics of a developing tradition and the theme of openness, as well as those with a particular interest in 1960s Cambridge radicalism and the British reception of the Second Vatican Council.

Prayers to See You Through Each Day: A Special Selection from BBC Radio 4's Prayer for the Day
This very special edition is both highly attractive and of great practical use, containing 40 of the most moving, inspiring and comforting prayers and reflections from Prayer for the Day volumes I and II. The book is designed to be a true companion through the day, a source of real help and support when facing challenges.There are four chapters: The Adventure of Each Day , which deals with opportunities for reflection during our daily routines; Let Nothing Dismay Thee , which offers comfort, courage and hope at difficult times; The Wonder of Life , about looking about us and responding with thankfulness, love, awe and wonder; and Finding Heaven on Earth , which explores the moments when we can move from the material to the transcendental.Each of the prayers is associated with a specific purpose. There is a prayer on renewing our lives at the start of the day, for example, and another on feeling gratitude at its close. There are prayers to turn to when receiving bad news and when feeling overcome with doubt and fear. There are prayers to ask for inspiration, courage and positivity, as well as prayers that help when we're faced with a hard choice or with difficult interactions with others. The prayers, a mix of traditional and modern, have all been broadcast on BBC Radio 4's much-loved, early-morning spiritual slot, Prayer for the Day, each one introduced by a well-known member of the faith communities. The book takes a multi-faith approach, with pieces from the different Christian denominations, as well as from Muslim, Jewish, Hindu, Sikh and Buddhist contributors.

The Caroline Divines and the Church of Rome: A Contribution to Current Ecumenical Dialogue
In the early seventeenth century, as the vehement aggression of the early Reformation faded, the Church of England was able to draw upon scholars of remarkable ability to present a more thoughtful defence of its position. The Caroline Divines, who flourished under King Charles I, drew upon vast erudition and literary skill, to refute the claims of the Church of Rome and affirm the purity of the English religious settlement. This book examines their writings in the context of modern ecumenical dialogue, notably that of the Anglican-Roman Catholic International Commission (ARCIC) to ask whether their arguments are still valid, and indeed whether they can contribute to contemporary ecumenical progress. Drawing upon an under-used resource within Anglicanism's own theological history, this volume shows how the restatement by the Caroline Divines of the catholic identity of the Church prefigured the work of ARCIC, and provides Anglicans with a vocabulary drawn from within their own tradition that avoids some of the polemical and disputed formulations of the Roman Catholic tradition.

This is My Body: Vulnerability and Christian Vocation
In a culture obsessed with youth, body image and physical perfection, many people have an ambiguous relationship with their bodies. Yet our bodies are the means through which we relate to and encounter others and ourselves, the site of our personal hopes and struggles, a source of pleasure and the basis of pain. Amid these conflicting expectations, the Christian narrative - that God chose to share in the physical reality of our lives and became flesh in the person of Jesus Christ - provides us with a critical lens through which to view our relationship with our bodies. Jennie Hogan is an Anglican priest with a history of brain injury and illness since childhood. This life-changing condition proved to be instrumental in her vocation to ordained ministry. In this book she explores what it means to be human and vulnerable, yet made in God's image. She reflects on such themes as incarnation, the mystical body of the church, identity, healing, hope, death and resurrection and the implications of Jesus' identification of his body as the source of our salvation.

Forgiveness and Reconciliation in the Aftermath of Abuse
While forgiveness and reconciliation are central themes in the church's proclamation of the gospel, superficial understandings that separate them from justice and repentance have serious consequences for Christian ministry to survivors and perpetrators of abuse, and for the church's witness to wider society. This theological and pastoral resource addresses specific challenges to the church as it seeks to speak truthfully in the aftermath of abuse, and provides material to help parishes and dioceses who find themselves facing the complex realities of such issues. It explores key questions: - What do we mean by 'abuse'? - What is distinctive about abuse as a form of sin? - Is there a place for repentance by churches? - How should the church speak of being forgiven and forgiving? - Does the church have a ministry of reconciliation in the aftermath of abuse? Designed to complement the Church of England's extensive safeguarding practice guidance, this resource provides guidance for all who preach, teach and exercise pastoral ministry in the Church of England. It has been approved and commended for study by the House of Bishops.

Anglican Baptismal Liturgies
This unique volume collects together baptismal liturgies in use across five continents to reveal the breadth of theological understanding and diversity of practice in Anglicanism today. Liturgies from the Anglican Churches in over forty countries are translated and presented systematically to facilitate study and comparison. Christian initiation is more than just a rite. Its language and symbolism express varying theological understandings of what it means to belong to the family of God, and also of the sacraments. These are not settled questions, and this volume makes a significant contribution to the continuing debates around these questions within Anglicanism and the wider Church.

The Hardest Part: A Centenary Critical Edition
Stark, moving but with glimmers of humour amongst the wreckage, The Hardest Part asks perhaps the hardest question of all when faced with the horrors of the 1st World War - where was God to be found in the carnage of the western front? Geoffrey Studdert Kennedy's answer, that through the cross God shares in human suffering rather than being a `passionate potentate' looking down unmoved by death, injury and destruction on an immense scale, was, and still is, revolutionary. Marking the centenary both of the end of the First World War and the original publication of The Hardest Part, this new critical edition contains a contextual introduction, a brief biography of Studdert Kennedy, annotated bibliography and the full text of the first edition of the book, with explanatory notes.

The Anglican Communion at a Crossroads: The Crises of a Global Church
Worldwide debates over issues of sexuality and gender have come to a head in recent years in mainline and evangelical churches, with the Anglican Communion--a worldwide network of churches that trace their practice to Canterbury and claim some 85 million members--among the most publicly visible sites of contestation. This thorough and compelling analysis of the conflicts within the Communion argues that they are symptoms of long-simmering issues that must be addressed when Anglican bishops and archbishops meet at the 2020 Lambeth Conference. To many, the disagreements over such issues as LGBTQ clergy, same-sex marriage, and women's ordination suggest an insurmountable crisis facing Anglicans, one that may ultimately end the Communion. Christopher Craig Brittain and Andrew McKinnon argue otherwise. Drawing on extensive empirical research and interviews with influential Anglican leaders, they show how these struggles stem from a complex interplay of factors, notably the forces and effects of globalization, new communications technology, and previous decisions made by the Communion. In clarifying both the theological arguments and social forces at play as the bishops and primates of the Anglican Communion prepare to set the Church's course for the next decade, Brittain and McKinnon combine sociological and theological methodologies to provide both a nuanced portrait of Anglicanism in a transnational age and a primer on the issues with which the Lambeth Conference will wrestle. Insightful, informative, and thought-provoking, The Anglican Communion at a Crossroads is an invaluable resource for understanding the debates taking place in this worldwide community. Those interested in Anglicanism, sexuality and the Christian tradition, the sociology of religion, and the evolving relationship between World Christianity and churches in the Global North will find it indispensable.

This book is essentially an autobiography, but it traces in particular the changes which occurred in British agriculture during the second half of the twentieth century. The author writes from his experience of being brought up on a farm, studying for an agricultural degree, farming in a family partnership and a career in agricultural consultancy. He details consultancy experience gained in South Yorkshire in an area of small Pennine family farms which were mainly grassland, in Warwickshire where the farming was more mixed, and in Essex where the farms were large with the accent on arable crops. The consultancy section concludes with experience in management in Somerset and Gloucestershire. Later chapters deal with early retirement, travelling and a further career as a part-time Anglican minister.

Worship Reimagined: Renewing worship in a changing church
Worship is a dynamic, living encounter that should never be static. In the Church of England, although Common Worship provides texts for every season and occasion, the church constantly needs to refresh its worship, just as it reshapes its presence in local communities. In this comprehensive volume, a wide range of experienced liturgists, musicians and pastoral practitioners consider the principles that will determine the character and quality, as well as the content, of our worship in the future. It explores how new forms can meet new needs while remaining faithful to the church's essential understanding of worship. Over twenty chapters consider how emerging forms of worship can be: - Relational, accessible and inclusive - Rooted in Scripture, the Creeds, and Spirit-filled - Sacramental, symbolic and multi-sensory - Transformative, pastoral and prophetic The contributors are all members of the Group for the Renewal of Worship, a broadly evangelical group within the Church of England and including senior clergy, musicians, theological college tutors in liturgy and former members of the Liturgical Commission.
