This book is a collection of essays by leading theologians and church leaders on the implications of the proposed Anglican Covenant, which has been offered as a solution to the recent crises facing worldwide Anglicanism. At the Anglican Primates' meeting in February 2007 a draft Covenant was commended for study by the constituent churches of the Anglican Communion. This book presents a sober and dispassionate discussion of the theology and politics behind the Covenant. The writers represent a number of different theological traditions and disciplines within and beyond Anglicanism. What unites them is a desire to understand other opinions and to listen to different views. The contributors include theological educators, church historians, ethicists, biblical scholars, and canonists from different parts of the Anglican Communion and from ecumenical partners. While the book aims to be dispassionate and to stand apart from the rhetoric of ecclesiastical parties, it also offers original and thought-provoking discussions based on detailed and thorough scholarship.

In his introduction Mark Chapman discusses the development of the authority structures of the Anglican Communion, as well as the recent history of conflict between the member churches, particularly over the issue of homosexuality. Ecumenical reflections on conciliarity are offered by Paul McPartlan, a leading Roman Catholic scholar, and Kenneth Wilson, a prominent Methodist. John Barton, Professor of Old Testament at Oxford University, contributes a chapter on the concept of Covenant in the Old Testament tradition. This book provides a valuable resource for global Anglicanism as it begins to develop the final version of the Covenant over the coming years. It will be crucial reading for all those involved in preparing for the Lambeth Conference of 2008.

About the Author:

Mark Chapman is Vice-Principal of Ripon College Cuddesdon, Oxford, and a Reader in Modern Theology at the University of Oxford, UK. He has written widely on modern church history, ethics and theology. His books include Ernst Troeltsch and Liberal Theology (Oxford), The Coming Crisis (Sheffield), Blair's Britain (DLT) and Anglicanism: A Very Short Introduction (Oxford).

Review:

"Written under the auspices of the Affirming Catholicism Movement, the authors provide readers with a relatively unbiased and thought-provoking study of the draft Covenant ... what makes this book unique is its attempt to work towards a resolution of the issue using practical, theological and ecclesiological approaches. While focussing on one branch of the Christian faith, it offers much food for theological reflection to those of us coming from other branches." - Verbum et Ecclesia

"This is a useful collection of essays...It presents a helpfully diverse range of views...provides substantial food for thought and reflection"1 December 2008 (John Riches, Glasgow University Expository Times)

"This collection of essays remains a valuable resource in the ongoing discussion of whether or not an Anglican covenant is the way to address the Communion's so-called 'ecclesial deficit' spoken of by the present archbishop of Canterbury."
-Richard Geoffrey Leggett, Sewanee Theological Review, Vol. 52:4, 2009

"This is a useful collection of essays...It presents a helpfully diverse range of views...provides substantial food for thought and reflection"1 December 2008 (Sanford Lakoff Expository Times)
