St Peter's, East Melbourne, has always been an Anglican Church with a difference—promoting a highly traditional liturgy while, at times, encouraging its congregation to a serious study of socialism and other political ideologies. It has had an eclectic mix of clergy, including a Chinese priest, a vicar who was a champion rower, and a vicar who had no qualms about promoting a political agenda. Colin Holden firmly places the history of the parish in the broader context of Melbourne and national history.

Book Description Melbourne University Press, Carlton South Vic, Australia, 1996. Hardcover (Original Cloth). Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. First Edition. 950 g; XVIII, 334 pages, last two pages blank, appendices, chapter notes, bibliography, index, illustrations in black-and-white within the text both black-and-white photographs, and reproductions of art work. Decorated end pages, colour illustrated dustwrapper. A distinctive blend of the Conservative and the radical characterises the history of the Anglican Parish of St Peter's, East Melbourne. This probing study by Colin Holden firmly places the history of the parish in the broader context of Melbourne and national history, as well as in the context of the appeal of socialism to a number of "a high church" Anglicans involved in social justice issues. It documents the doctrinal emphasis on changing styles of worship that led some 19th-century Anglicans to describe Anglo-Catholics as "the enemy in disguise"." -- front fold over blurb.
