Format: Paperback
A collection of essays assessing the classical Anglican tradition (Scripture, Tradition and Reason) .They began life as a series of lectures leading up to the 2008 Lambeth Conference and focus on how the inheritance of the past and present can be appropriated into the future - instead of being marred by the deep pessimism which permeates so much of Anglicanism - particularly in the increasingly inward looking and often bitter Anglo-Catholic tradition - all the essays offer hopeful and constructive insights for a vibrant catholic form of Christianity within Anglicanism which understands the church as a place of dialogue, encounter and renewal.

Instead of division, the emphasis is on conversation, dialogue and unity.

The Book is divided into two parts:

The three essays in part one re-assess the sources of doctrine in Anglicanism in novel ways, all in dialogue with history, as well as with the theologies of other churches, and the experience in other religions.

Charlotte Methuen explains that there have always been disagreements in the Church and examines Hooker’s ‘three-legged stool’. She points out that tradition is a living thing, not just ‘something we’ve always done’ and has an amusing story to illustrate the latter.

She disagrees with it being a certainty that the Anglican Communion will end in schism: After the 1988 Lambeth Conference, Timothy Dudley Smith commented: 'I felt the Conference has been a personal triumph under God for the Archbishop of Canter¬bury. I do not see how the British press can go on picturing him as an ineffective and isolated leader presiding over the dissolution of the Anglican Communion.
