This new and broad ranging anthology replaces A Feast of Anglican Spirituality on the Canterbury Press list and is a more comprehensive guide to Anglican doctrine and practice, suitable both for browsing and for continuous reading. It is sometimes said that Anglicanism has no distinctive doctrine, yet this volume demonstrates a clear Anglican contribution to Christian thought and practice.
There is also a splendid opening review of the narrative of Anglican thought from Henry VIII until now, which manages to be magisterial while remaining fluent and clear.
(...) Such a Church is hard to sum up. The inspiring evidence of its spirit, however, is in these pages, and the reader is in debt to Professor Chapman for his selection of texts, and his attractive presentation of them. Weary of strident voices in the Church and the world today, we can turn to this book. It conveys serious truth at a reasonable price, and in persuasive form." Prebendary John Gaskell, former Vicar of St Alban's Holborn, CHURCH TIMES, 27 January 2006.
