The Anglican church has been no stranger to controversy during its history but the debates raging at the moment are among the hottest it has known. This book asks some prominent Anglicans why they are still in the church and what they love about it. Representing Anglicanism in all its range and diversity, the contributors are positive about the church and their place in it, and show appreciation, rather than resentment, of a Church that is broad enough to contain those of opposing views. This is a personal, partial and affectionate (though by no means uncritical) glimpse of the Anglican Church. >

Review:

Edited extract from Why I am still an Anglican, ed by Caroline Chartes, in The Times (Main)

'[a] fascinating volume of essays and interviews' (Edward Skidelsky The American Spectator)

"the book 'is a personal, partial and affectionate (though by no means uncritical) glimpse of the Anglican Church, whose diversity should still - most of the time - be a cause for celebration.'" (Life and Work)

"...this is an aspirational and comforting book. At a time of some dissension in Anglicanism, it is well that we be reminded of the virtues of the Church of England. And to know that we are not alone, personally and communally, in our struggles and uncertainties."Peter Willis, The Lance, St George's Parish Church Jesmond, August 2006 (Peter Willis)

"...an intriguing book..."Robin Ward, Church Times (Robin Ward Church Times)

"This book is full of affection, commitment, enthusiasm, and devotion for Anglicanism."Robin Ward, Church Times (Robin Ward Church Times)

"... this collection of essays and interviews raises important questions about the church."Paul Richardson, Church of England Newspaper (Paul Richardson Church Of England Newspaper)

'a moving account...an intriguing collection of essays and interviews edited by Caroline Chartes'Praxis News Worship, Summer 2006 (Praxis News of Worship)

'This book is a delight...A lovely way to meet some notable fellow pilgrims.'~ Patrick Forbes, Christianity, 2007 (Patrick Forbes)

"The stories are a fascinating read ...[they] combine to show that God continues to be at work, reaching out to touch people in whatever way he can" - Church Times
