Ann Loades is one of the most significant figures in contemporary theology, becoming the first female President of the Society for the Study of Theology and one of only two people ever to be awarded a CBE for services to theology.

Grace and Glory in One Another's Faces is a collection of her best sermons given in cathedrals, college chapels, parish churches and ecumenical contexts around the UK and abroad.

Many engage the lectionary readings for Sundays in the Christian year, exploring the seasons as well as the texts set before the church. Others make accessible the legacy of figures from different eras: Francis of Assisi, Ignatius of Loyola, Martin Luther and John Wycliffe through to influential twentieth-century Christians.

There is a leaning to influential women in Christian history, thus introducing readers not only to engagements with scripture but reformers of Christian worship, of social practice, and of patterns and possibilities for Christian discipleship.

Also included are two essays that illumine Ann's sacramental understanding of worship and preaching.

Ann Loades, Stephen Burns

Ann Loades CBE, best known for her work in feminist theology, was the first woman president of the Society for the Study of Theology, and only the second person to be awarded a CBE for services to theology (the first being C.F.D. Moule). From 1975-2003, she taught theology at Durham University, was a Canon of Durham Cathedral and is now in active retirement in St Andrews. Stephen Burns' PhD was supervised by Ann Loades. He is Professor of Liturgical and Practical Theology at Pilgrim Theological College, Melbourne, Australia. He is a priest in the Church of England.

'What Ann Loades has been able under God, to facilitate, [is] the listening of the church to the questions of the world, of the culture, the taking of those questions into the praying life of Christ in this place, and then return with fresh answers, a fresh word of grace and hope.' -- Tom Wright
