In response to the very real threat of schism in the Anglican Communion, the Lambeth Commission on Communion 2004 published the "Windsor Report" which proposed the worldwide adoption of a Covenant - an agreement to be entered into by all Anglican churches to regulate their relationships and reduce the likelihood of conflict in the future. This book offers introductory guidance to the idea of a Covenant, its theological context and legal implications, the arguments for and against it.

'This book is both timely and authoritative, dealing as it does with the proposed Anglican Covenant - its concept, purposes, structure, scope and implementation. The authors work is essential reading for anyone who wants to be well informed about the proposed Covenant and to take a serious part in the debate on its desirability and content'.
