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.

"Published by the Provincial Office of the Church of the Province of Kenya, P.O. Box 40504, Nairobi, Kenya".
"The Pre-Lambeth Conference for Anglican Bishops and Archbishops in Africa met in Limuru, Kenya, from July 8th-16th 1987. The Conference was intended as a preparation for the 1988 Lambeth Conference of all Bishops in the Anglican Communion which will be held next July in Canterbury. Hosted by the Archbishop of Kenya, the Most Rev. Manasses Kuria, and organized by the Provincial Secretary, the Ven. John Kago, assisted by a small Provincial Committee chaired by the Rt. Rev. David Gitari, the Conference brought together 57 Bishops from nine out of the ten Anglican Provinces in Africa, eight of them Archbishops: approximately half of the entire number of Anglican Bishops on the continent of Africa. It was the first time a large number of Archbishops and Bishops from Africa had assembled on African soil to discuss things of common concern". -- Intro.
