Notes
"[By] Trevor Beeson".
"First published in 2002 by SCM Press. This paperback edition published in 2003". -- verso of t.-p.
Includes bibliographical references and index.
"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.
Contents: Acknowledgements / TB -- Introduction -- The aristocrats and the courtiers -- The scholars -- The statesmen -- The prophets -- The pastors -- The controversialists -- The headmasters -- The church reformers -- The social reformers -- The missionaries -- The evangelists -- The odd men out -- The pioneers : looking ahead -- Bibliography -- Index.

Notes
A description of the 15 May 2017 visit to Mtandi Clinic near Masasi by the Rev. Geoffrey Monjesa, development officer for the Anglican diocese of Masasi, and a delegation of Canadian volunteers and staff of the Primate's World Relief and Development Fund (PWRDF), the relief and development arm of the Anglican Church of Canada. "Built in the 1990s as part of Partners for Life, a PWRDF project to combat the HIV/AIDS epidemic sweeping sub-Saharan Africa" (p. 10) the clinic has since taken on "an expanded role, becoming a focal point of a PWRDF project on nutrition and food security that emphasized maternal and newborn health. Through this project (known locally as the Community Health Improvement Plan, or CHIP), a maternity ward was built up, and PWRDF provided a regular stock of drugs and medical supplies" (p. 10). "Due to the success of the CHIP project, which wrapped up in March 2017, a second larger project called All Mothers and Children Count (AMCC) was initiated in 2015. It will run until 2020, and aims to provide medicine and education to several dispensaries, both within Masasi and neighbouring Tunduru" (p. 11). "According to the Rev. Linus Buriani, who works closely with Monjesa on an AMCC project currently underway, the challenge lies in building the local population's confidence in the dispensaries and clinics" (p. 11).
"In May [2017], staff writer Andre Forget travelled to Tanzania with a delegation from the Primate's World Relief and Development Fund to visit projects supported by the Anglican Church of Canada. He files these stories and photos, the second of a three-part series".

Notes
"The Anglican Church of Tanzania recently held a five-day workshop to develop four-year health and HIV/AIDS strategic plan. The workshop included partners from several aid and church groups, including churches in the Anglican provinces of Africa". "The Tanzanian church runs 12 hospitals and more than 40 dispensaries and clinics all over the country." "The Anglican church in Burundi is also planning to respond strategically to the HIV/AIDS crisis". From ACNS. Photo of Neema Majule.
