"The purpose of this book is twofold. It provides brief portraits of forty-eight bishops who were in office from about the time of the 1832 Reform Bill, when the Church of England as well as the nation as a whole entered a period of continuous change, until the final years of the twentieth century." -- Intro., p. [1].
Beeson "ends by asking why such able and interesting bishops are now in short supply and wonders whether the hectically busy managerial role assumed by the bishops of the new millennium represents a betrayal of the Episcopal office and a consequent weakening of the Church's witness in an incredibly secularized society. Looking not far ahead, the likely impact of women bishops is also discussed". -- back cover.

1999 Trinity
Issue of IAFN Newsletter included as part of the Anglican World for Trinity 1999. A series of 11 short reports from different regions and countries describing the churches' response to the problem of prostitution. "Prostitution has a long history, and the attitude of the Church has ranged from this acceptance of `the oldest profession' as a necessary evil, to outright condemnation. As we approach the third millennium, there seems little doubt that both prostitution and trafficking in women and children are one the increase. It is a global problem. Political and economic pressures are fuelling the sex trade, sometimes in new areas". "The most vulnerable and abused of all are the children. As the articles from individuals and organisations working in Thailand, the Philippines, Africa, Hong Kong and South America make clear, child prostitution is flourishing in many countries. Increasing numbers of boys and young men are being involved, as well as girls and young women" (p. [19]).
