'In the discussions now going forward about restructuring ministerial education, a book like the present volume has a huge contribution to make, not just to the intellectual and institutional history of the Church of England but to that Church's self-understanding. As we read this excellent memoir of a history both brave and complex, we can be grateful that the Church of England has been so wonderfully served; and we can strengthen our resolve to make sure that such a service is still available to the Church of the future'. The Most Revd Rowan Williams, Archbishop of Canterbury '...this collection commemorates the 150th anniversary of a singularly Anglican institution, now styled Ripon College, Cuddesdon... All the contributions are lucidly written, informative historical essays... to single out essays is invidious since they are all of a high standard.' Theology 'This is a book to be read and enjoyed, not just by alumni of the two colleges, and church historians, but by all concerned with training for the ministry in the Church of today.' Church Times '... a stimulating insight into church life in the early years of the nineteenth century as well as some of the figures and controversies that dominated the period.' Contact 'It makes most fascinating reading, touching in its pages a wide range of aspects of how clergy should be trained today.' Anvil --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
