Anglicanism and the Christian Church is a work of considerable strategic importance for the ecumenical movement and for the Anglican Communion. It describes and interprets Anglican understanding of the Christian Church, from the Reformation to the present day. This volume presents the development of Anglican identity and ecclesiology in its historical context, focusing particularly on Anglican engagement with the Roman Catholic and Protestant traditions. The volume also provides substantial accounts of the major Anglican theologians, from Richard Hooker to modern writers.
