This book explores the increasing domination of the Anglican Diocese of Sydney, which is the largest, richest, most powerful, and most conservative, diocese in Australia - and arguably the most conservative in worldwide Anglicanism. It is led by a hardline, uncompromising and well-organised male clerical elite who are determined to impose their version of Christianity on the Anglican Church both in Australia and internationally. Most explicitly, the Sydney Diocense is increasingly threatening a schism or split with the Church Of England over the ordination of gay clergy and aligning itself with conservative African dioceses in moral debates. This has serious ramifications for all Anglicans and for wider Australian society.

Book Description Melbourne University Press, Australia, 2007. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Religious fundamentalism is a growing force in Australian society, but it is not confined to conservative Islam or to fringe denominations. In The New Puritans, Muriel Porter explains how the mainstream Anglican Church in this country is influenced by the ideological agendas of its largest and richest diocese, Sydney. Over the past few decades, Sydney Anglicans have increasingly modelled themselves on the sixteenth-century English Puritans. They have radically altered church services, relentlessly opposed all attempts to extend full equality to women in the Church, and joined forces with conservative Anglicans worldwide to prevent the blessing of same-sex partnerships and the ordination of gay people. Under the leadership of the charismatic Jensen brothers-Peter, the Archbishop of Sydney, and his brother Phillip, the Dean-Sydney poses a growing threat to mainstream Anglicanism. The New Puritans explores the Diocese s impact on the Church in Australia and internationally. Seller Inventory # AAN9780522851847
