Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Concerned with vital issues of ecclesiology within Australian Anglicanism, this book is both daring and controversial. It confronts the 'undiscussable' and in doing so brings together people who write from various contexts within the Church. Its diversity of style and attitude reflects the living richness and complexity of Australian Anglicanism today and also the problems and challenges. The book, in four parts, sets out the issues of methodology, looks at influences of the Australian Anglican inheritance, examines aspects of the institutional life of the Church, and, finally, focuses on the social and political contexts within which ecclesiology is shaped and created. This book is an 'essay', a conversation and a listening between theologians and, consequently, does not attempt to present a unified ecclesiology. As with the Christian community from which it stems, it seeks to engage with its divine-'wonderful and confessedly strange'-origins.Contributors: Peter Adam, Peter G Bolt, Alan Cadwallader, Ray Cleary, David Cole, ScottCowdell, Jane Foulcher, Bruce Kaye, Sarah Macneil, Stephen Pickard, Keith Rayner, DuncanReid, Geoff Smith, Mark D.Thompson, Heather Thomson, Richard Treloar, Raewynne J Whitely.
