This is a work of considerable strategic importance for the ecumenical movement and for the Anglican Communion. It describes and interprets Anglican understanding of the Christian Church, from the Reformation to the present day.This book presents the development of Anglican identity and ecclesiology in its historical context, focusing particularly on Anglican engagement with the Roman Catholic and Protestant traditions. The book also provides substantial accounts of the major Anglican theologians, from Richard Hooker to modern writers.In this new and expanded edition, Paul Avis includes discussions of the influence of evangelical theology and reflects on the integrity of Anglicanism for the future.

Review:

"Written with outstanding facility and is a pleasure to read ... a very important piece of work."

"Readers who know the 1989 edition of this good book will welcome the author's through and expansive 2002 revision, not because the earlier one needed repair but because the revision provides even more insightful content. The intervening years have enriched the author's already thoughtful perspective There is a great deal to commend in this excellent revision and reconsideration. I have made classroom use of the first edition since its publication and I will do the same with its successor." - William Seth Adams, The Anglican Theological Review

"Very good, clear, sound exposition, original ideas.
Basil Hall

"Written with outstanding facility and is a pleasure to read ... a very important piece of work."
Stephen Sykes

"An excellent study I recommend with enthusiasm."
George Newlands

"We live in an age of bi-lateral conversations between Anglicanism and other Christian Churches. The 1988 Lambeth Conference affirmed those already established, and added to their number. It is a paradoxical truth of ecumenical experience to find that inter-church conversations have prompted many Anglicans to consider more deeply their own identity and traditions. This volume by Paul Avis will assist all those who do so. I welcome its appearance - a further sign that study of Anglican ecclesiology is firmly on our doctrinal agenda."
Robert Runcie

"The main strength of the book is its relentless focus on the defining question of Anglican ecclesiology - episcopacy." Modern Believing, July 2003.

'substantively reorganized and supplemented...few would gainsay the verve and clarity that characterize the author's re-presentation of his imaginative construal of Anglicanism. Part 3 as it now stand is clearly more tendenious - and compelling.' Journal of Religion, Gregory Allen Robbins, University if Denver, --Sanford Lakoff "Journal of Religion "

"This is by far the best available introduction to the work of the most formative figures of the Church of England" - Mark D. Chapman, Ripon College Cuddesdon--Sanford Lakoff "Expository Times "

About the Author:
