What is the nature of world Anglicanism in a postcolonial, global age? This book provides the key to understanding both the character of this Christian tradition and the essential nature of current disputes. It describes the foundations of the tradition and outlines its central beliefs and practices, focusing on mission, liturgy, engagement with others, and power, knowledge and authority in the church. It includes chapters on women's ordination and on homosexuality in the public life of the church, and the final chapter looks to the challenges of the future.ContentsIntroductionPart I. Foundations1.
