What Anglicans Believe became a classic in the years following its publication in 1974. It has been re-written for a very different world to the point of being a renewed book with a new title.
The new first chapter looks at the whole question of belief, which has become a much greater issue in the modern world. Questions for discussion or individual thought have been added at the end. Throughout the book, David Edwards writes as an honest thinker who faces the questions being asked. His purpose is to present what many Christians now believe for study groups and individual reading, while also helping readers who are Anglicans in all parts of the world to understand their own tradition and what it now has to offer.

A careful reading of the New Testament shows great differences among the twelve men first called by Jesus to follow him. It also shows a considerable variety of outlook among Christians and among Christian congregations. One result is that there are four gospels, not one. If you read a letter by St. Paul, and then the letter of St. James, you might be forgiven for wondering whether the same religion is being described. In Paul's letter to the Galatians, he recalls a fierce argument with Peter: "I opposed him to his face, because he was clearly in the wrong" (2:11). The religion of the New Testament was not uniform, and there is no good reason why Christianity today should be.
