"A l'heure ou l'anglicanisme devient de plus en plus un phenomene mondial, en contraste avec l'Eglise etablie d'Angleterre, et face a une Europe unifiee et ouverte, a l'heure ou tant d'efforts sont fait pour rapprocher autant qu'il est possible les traditions propres aux nations, leurs institutions politiques, economiques, scientifiques, leurs interets et aspirations sur la scene internationale, il apparait, cet anglicanisme, comme une valeur sure, une ressource intellectuelle et spirituelle de premier ordre, a la fois democratique, tolerante et comprehensive, capable de rassembler et meme d'unir, en tenant compte de la diversite des dons et des optiques, tous ceux que preoccupent le maintien et l'expansion des valeurs essentielles du christianisme: valeurs dogmatiques, valeurs historiques de la tradition, valeurs spirituelles dans la soumission totale a la Parole de Dieu, a son Esprit et au Verbe Incarne." -- p. 5.

"This book considers the three main tendencies of Anglicanism (Evangelism, Catholicism and the Middle Way). After looking at doctrine, priesthood, episcopacy, establishment, politics, internationalism, ecumenism and comprehensiveness, it predicts that all three tendencies will survive and may be joined by others. The conclusions and pointers will often be found controversial. But the author believes that `Anglicanism will remain a loose international conglomerate of Christians believing many different things. Its unity will be constantly strained: its members will be constantly tempted to disunity, but not above what most of them are able to bear. Anglicanism has the experience of containing differences, the tolerance of theological adventurousness, the confidence and prestige born of long existence, to carry this off. And truth, that elusive commodity made up of as many parts as matter itself, will be served as a result'." -- Back cover.

"Through the generosity of Mr. and Mrs. Neil C. McMath, an annual lectureship, named by a special committee 'The McMath Lectures', has been established in the Diocese of Michigan. ... These lectures, delivered by the Bishop of Chester, on the occasion of the centennial of St. John's Church, Detroit, are the first in this series". -- Foreword.
"I would ask the reader to bear in mind the purpose of the lectures and to try to re-create the setting in which they were delivered. My objective was to express in a very small compass the splendor of the Anglican Communion in its Catholic and Reformed tradition. I was speaking to the man and woman in the pew and seeking to convey to them both the joy and responsibility of their membership in that part of the Catholic Church to which they have given their loyalty. The lectures were delivered on five consecutive week-days in April 1959, in the Church of St. John, Detroit". -- Intro.

"In this clear and authoritative `Very Short Introduction', Mark Chapman examines how Anglicanism is defined, and traces its history and development, along the way, revealing what is distinctive about its theology. Highlighting the contemporary diversity of this worldwide phenomenon, Chapman also examines the problems it faces: from secularization to the headline-grabbing controversies over women priests and homosexuality. Chapman ends his account with thought-provoking suggestions of possible futures for the Anglican Communion". -- inside front cover.

"This document has emerged as part of a four-year process in which church leaders, theologians and educators have come together from around the world to discuss the teaching of Anglican identity, life and practice. They clarified the characteristic ways in which Anglicans understand themselves and their mission in the world. These features, described as the 'Anglican Way', were intended to form the basis for how Anglicanism is taught at all levels of learning involving laity, clergy and bishops. This document is not intended as a comprehensive definition of Anglicanism, but it does set in place sign-posts which guide Anglicans on their journey of self-understanding and Christian discipleship".
The document consists of 16 numbered paragraphs organized into four main sections: Formed by Scripture, Shaped through Worship, Ordered by Communion and Directed by God's Mission. Document signed: TEAC Anglican Way Consultation, Singapore, May 2007.
