Anglicanism Reimagined: An Honest Church?


SPCK 2010

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


In Anglicanism Reimagined, Andrew Shanks challenges all who are tempted to erect boundaries around their faith. Far more important than dogma and metaphysics, he argues, is the need to be open to all, and to engage with people who hold views at odds with our own. He shows how a commitment to this ideal can create fresh energy and new ways forward for the Church.

Praise for the Print Edition

This is an irrepressibly hopeful book and an exhilarating read. Shanks believes that the Church should be a place of open conversation between radically different people who are asking: “Why am I what I am and what am I called to become?” He suggests that the Anglican Communion is uniquely—if precariously—positioned to be such a Church—and what needs to change if that is to happen. I find myself daring to believe that he’s right.

—Rosemary Lain-Priestley, dean of Women’s Ministry Diocese of London
