In recent years two fault lines have appeared in the Church of England. One is between liberals and conservatives, the other between supporters and opponents of the ordination of women. It has been thrust to the top of the Church's agenda by the success of the women's movement. Now that the Church's Synod has voted in favour, the Archbishop of Canterbury has become involved in a crucial damage-limitation exercise, seeking to avoid a schism. This is an account by a journalist of the strife-torn history of the arguments. There has been painful human confrontation between individuals who would never have expected to find themselves on opposing sides. The book covers the intellectual debate about the legitimacy of women priests, and the ecumenical dialogue with, pre-eminently, the Church of Rome.
