The Oxford Handbook of Anglican Studies Summary

The Oxford Handbook of Anglican Studies by Mark D. Chapman (Vice-Principal, Ripon College and Reader in Modern Theology, Vice-Principal, Ripon College and Reader in Modern Theology, University of Oxford)

The Anglican Communion is the third largest Christian denomination and claims a membership of some 80 million members in about 164 countries. Given that there are only around two hundred countries in the world, this makes the churches of the Anglican Communion the most geographically widespread denomination after Roman Catholicism. The 44 essays in this volume embrace a wide range of academic disciplines: theological; historical; demography and geography; and different aspects of culture and ethics. They are united in their discussion of what is effectively a new inter-disciplinary subject which we have termed 'Anglican Studies'. At the core of this volume is the phenomenon of 'Anglicanism' as this is expressed in different places and in a variety of ways across the world. This Handbook covers a far broader set of topics from a wider range of perspectives than has been hitherto attempted in Anglican Studies. At the same time, it doesn't impose a particular theological or historical agenda. The contributions are drawn from across the spectrum of theological views and opinions. It shows that the unsettled nature of the polity is part of its own rich history; and many will see this as a somewhat lustrous tradition. In its comprehensive coverage, this volume is a valuable contribution to Anglican Studies and helps formulate a discipline that might perhaps promote dialogue and discussion across the Anglican world.

The Oxford Handbook of Anglican Studies Reviews

This handbook is a welcome contribution to the murky field of 'Anglican studies' They have produced a significant contribution to the emerging discipline of Anglican studies, not least by forging a template for future studies of its kind. Only time will tell if Anglican studies endures as a stable category, but the present volume is the best attempt thus far to achieve such stability. * Stewart Clem, Religious Studies Review *
It is impossible to do justice to all the essays in this book. I learnt something from just about every contributor. * Paul Richardson, The Church of England Newspaper *
No self-respecting library should be without this invaluable reference work and every Anglican's bookshelf will benefit from this compendium of informed analysis and distilled wisdom. * Dr John Saxbee, Church Times *
