The Bible in the Life of the Church project was commissioned by the Anglican Consultative Council at its meeting in Jamaica in May 2009. Its aim is to explore how Anglicans use the Bible and to distil from and develop these explorations the principles of Anglican hermeneutics. This new volume in the Canterbury Studies in Anglicanism series draws together contributions by scholars and church leaders from different parts of the Anglican communion. In the first part of the book, writers from different regions of the world reflect on their experiences of using Scripture, while the second part offers reflections on a number of relevant themes such as: the Bible and homosexuality, an empirical study on the use of the Bible in the Church of England and the Anglican Communion and the Bible and the lectionary.
