The Church and the Twentieth Century, a collection of essays written by clergy and distinguished members of the Church of England, discusses the problems the Church faced during the first third of the twentieth century. Percy Dearmer, Norman Sykes, and eight other prominent Anglican thinkers discuss reforms in the Church’s doctrine, liturgy, and policy instituted to help it survive that difficult time. The authors represent different points of view, but generally take a liberal stance in hopes of freeing their faith and regaining a foothold against atheism and the metaphysical outlooks that had crept into Western philosophy at the time.
Published in 1936—between the two World Wars—this volume offers unique insights into the grave concerns of the Church as well as the leadership’s outlook for its future. Students of religion, students of history, and the faithful of any denomination have much to gain from the perspectives offered in this fascinating historical work.
