Product Description


'Philip Heldrake brings a pastoral sensitivity to bear on selections from "The Temple" and "The Country Parson" ... This volume reminds us that the metaphysical poets continue to speak to audiences beyond the literary academy. Shakespeareans have been almost the only early modernists to cultivate relationships between the academy and the nonacademic world. This volume suggests that specialists in other aspects of premodern culture may have a wider audience than they think.' (John Watkins "Recent Studies in the English Renaissance" 2012-12-00)

Anglican Communion-A Dynamic Community at an Axial Crossroad 30 Mar. 2014
By Rev. David Price - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The book lays out the dynamics of the Anglican Communion, the various cultural divides and the sincere efforts to bring reconciliation at the Lambeth Conference. The cultural divide remains. The book demonstrates the fragility of global organizations such as the Anglican Church with issues that are emotionally charged.
The church is reforming itself. It is a dynamic organization which represents the diversity of the countries within which it ministers as it locally understands and interprets Anglican Theology in this century. The greatest challenge which the church must face in four years time at Lambeth 2018 is inclusion and equality. The rights of women and the LGBT community will be supported by the churches in North America and the English Commonwealth while very different views will be espoused by African Anglicans. This group too, is diverse with various countries holding differing views. Some of the more conservative views are sponsored by moneyed North American Conservative Anglican churches which complicates the whole structure.

It is an axial time for the Anglican Communion. The book is a good read for those interested in the politics of religious organizations as well as a good foundational viewpoint for those working for human rights within the church.
