A Fallible Church: Lambeth Essays
Kenneth W. Stevenson
Darton, Longman & Todd, Jan 1, 2008 - Anglican Communion - 159 pages
A Fallible Church is a welcome reminder that moments of great crisis are often the most creative, however difficult they might be to live through. It shows that the communion is full of life, creativity and generosity of spirit, telling the neglected story of the enriching diocese-to-diocese partnerships that exist between England and Africa, where most Anglicans now live. It also re-awakens a sense of history. It shows that, serious and painful though they may be, there is nothing fundamentally new or different about the current conflicts within Anglicanism.The leading Anglicans from different backgrounds and traditions brought together here by Kenneth Stevenson believe that, though our generation will make its own mistakes, like past and future generations, God continues to use the Anglican communion, fallible like all of humanity, for the furtherance of his kingdom. A Fallible Church points us towards a patient and humble, but faithful future.The contributors are Mark Chapman, Norman Doe, John Gladwin, Graham James, James Jones, Terry Louden, David Stancliffe and the editor, Kenneth Stevenson.
