Reflections on urgent theological issues by established and emerging scholars across the Anglican Communion.
Featuring contributions by a diverse group of theologians from South and North, the Conversations in Global Anglican Theology series addresses the most pressing questions facing the churches of the Anglican Communion. From classical issues such as the imagio dei and atonement theology to contemporary challenges such as interfaith relations and the interaction of church and state, the series features thought-provoking essays by established and emerging scholars.
This first volume, edited by Michael Battle, considers questions of faith and their impact across the Anglican communion. Featuring contributions from writers across the Anglican communion, the volume examines the first of Richard Hooker's pillars of Anglicanism from a variety of perspectives.
