Book by Booty, John
"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
Booty provides a clear, succinct, balanced appraisal of the Episcopal Church from the 1950s to the present. Both perceptive and fair, he reveals the strengths and weaknesses of various groups in the church. He covers a broad range of topics, from theological revision, liturgical renewal, and the development of lay ministries to responses to the Vietnam War, the Civil Rights Movement, the women's movement (including the ordination of women), and revised concepts of church mission and of church ecumenicity. While he correctly cites homosexuality as one of the big, unresolved issues, he should perhaps have added broader issues of sexuality as well as relations to other faiths. Recommended for general and seminary libraries. Carolyn M. Craft, Longwood Coll., Farmville, Va.
