"'Frontiers Then and Now' sets contemporary thinking about the role and function of bishops in the context of the observance of a significant anniversary.

"[By] Robert H. Calderwood".
"Guardian Books is an imprint of Essence Publishing, a Christian book Publisher ... 20 Hanna Court, Belleville, Ontario, Canada K8P 5J2". -- verso of t.-p.
"Intercommunion is a privilege for those who believe in -- and whose principles of the Christian life are show in -- some acceptable Belief Statement, of which the five marks of Catholicity are an example (see Appendix I); and whose worship of necessity includes participation in the liturgy of the Holy Eucharist or Holy Communion. .... I contend that focusing our examinations within the parameters of the five marks of Catholicism, and concentrating our studies on what is historically accurately recorded, we will find the opportunity for honest arguments to support intercommunion". -- Preface I.

"[By] Eric S. MacDonald".
Includes bibliographical references and index.
"There is a life and death struggle taking place in the modern church, a struggle between conservatives, on the one hand, who wish to turn the hands of the clock back to more manageable times, and post-historical liberals or radicals, on the other, who wish Christian faith to continue its engagement with the world around them .... This struggle is coming to a focus, in our own time, over the issue of homosexuality and homosexual relations. Taking a recent book by Anglican conservatives ["The Anglican Church and Same Sex Couples"] as a foil, the present volume offers a critique of the conservative Anglican theology of sexualitym and of the presuppositions upon which it rests". -- back cover.
Contents: Foreword -- Prologue -- Feminism and Control -- The Bible -- Christian Doctrine -- Sex Part 1 -- Sex Part 2: Celebrating Sexuality -- Sex Part 3: Intimacy and Touch -- Bible and Homosexuality -- Epilogue -- Index.

Notes
A history and overview of how the General Synod operates and the process by which decisions are made. With special attention to the role of bishops. An individual from 1893 who observed General Synod today "would find a key difference: a body moredemocratic in character, in which bishops are treated less deferentially and decision making is shared among bishops, clergy, and lay people, both women and men". Until 1969 bishops met separately and secretly as the Upper House. In 1969, the two houses met together for the first time. Bishops "are under pressure in some quarters to give more emphatic leadership -- from the front rather than within. Others say that in trying to hold the centre the bishops are being pushed into conservative positions. The primate, Archbishop Michael Peers, says locating a discernible 'middle' is a concern in dioceses and also among the bishops: `Middle isn't just half-way between, but an inclusive centre which is not simply compromise or avoidance but one that expresses what is held in common'."

"Published by V.O.I.C.E. (Vocalizing Our Interest in Church Endeavours)".
Foreword by "The Most Reverend Harold L. Nutter, Archbishop (Ret.) of the Province of Canada and the Diocese of Fredericton".
Archbishop Nutter agrees with the author's argument "that there are `two incompatible and competing religions within the Church', expressing themselves in the authority of experience (liberalism) versus the authority of Divine revelation (orthodoxy). I share the author's conviction that we must face the question of our authority in the contemporary Church. The Church is not a democratic society, but a theocracy, and God is its head ...". "The author argues that the disagreement of those who see the relationship of homosexuals to the Church as a question of human/social justice and those who claim the authority of Scripture as a basis for their orthodox/traditional stand is the issue which will reveal the Church's division into `two incompatible and competing religions'." -- Foreword.
