Notes
"This book is a compelling testimony that will help all those who struggle with the relevance of their faith to the daily life that all must live, too often within circumstances over which they exercise little control. However, it is not a faith of acceptance, but rather of overcoming in a trust that God ultimately stands for justice and love. Evil, like the locusts will eventually subside and in the meantime, she quotes from Canadian theologian John Stackhouse, 'What do you think about God and evil ? Your life is your answer'."
Author is an Anglican priest and theologian in South Africa.

Notes
"Since the 1960s, the theme of renewal has become the obsession of North American Christianity, whatever the denominational designation. What will it be this year that brings Christian life and witness into line with the precepts of the gospel ? The evidence that the days of the status quo are numbered exists all around us. And yet, the work of renewal in so many situations amounts to attempting to turn around a battleship in a bathtub !" "The materials often seem to encourage yet more avenues, admittedly religious, for personal self-improvement rather than any coming to grips with the demands of the gospel. The gospel is demanding as well as comforting, and true comfort and peace are the gifts bestowed with they prayer 'they will be done on earth, as it is in heaven' is being fulfilled. Part of our discipleship task is to discover what demands are being made of us within our particular life situations. Another is to address those demands as they are revealed. And this is the challenge to our faith, whoever we are and wherever we live. When this happens, the process of a life of true faith has begin, and as a process, it is never-ending, whatever books and programs are forthcoming".

Part I lays out the colonial inheritance. Kwok provides the challenge: `The Anglican Communion must determine whether it will be a relic of the colonial past, or a bridge to the future'." "The most direct challenge is found in the essay by David Hamid, now director of ecumenical affairs for the Anglican Communion and formerly the Anglican Church of Canada's mission secretary for Latin America and the Caribbean: `How do Anglicans feel about the progress being made which underlines ever more strongly the vocation of Anglicanism to disappear, and to re-emerge as part of a coming greater unity ?'".

Notes
A review of "The Calling of the Cuckoo" by David Jenkins and "The Dignity of Difference" by Jonathan Sacks in a narrative review entitled "Are we ready to recognize that `they' are actually `us' ?" The reviewer is sympathetic to Jenkins of whom he says: "He threatened all those Anglicans who glory in the `us' and `them' understanding of their faith. His desire was to shape a gospel in which God's purposes are still being worked out, particularly in a world of new and exciting global possibilities".
