Contents divided into three sections: An Anglican Basis for Inter-Faith Encounters -- Guidelines for Interfaith Dialogue -- Selected Bibliography.
"The Lambeth Conference of 1978 requested all members of the Anglican Communion to consider their position on the Christian relationship with people of other faiths. .... In 1983 the General Synod of the Anglican Church of Canada requested its Inter-Church and Inter-Faith Relations Committee `to present to the 1986 General Synod a paper on a Christian theological basis for an Anglican response to other faiths'. The following statement and guidelines have been drafted to serve as a common basis for our thinking on this topic". -- p. 1.
"These guidelines are offered to Canadian Anglicans as they seek to reach out to their neighbours of other faiths. Our approach has two separate, but inter-related, aspects: dialogue, which includes growing in our knowledge of each other and a mutual sharing of spiritual insights; and common action which would involve joint efforts to deal with issues related to life together in society, but might also include activities of a devotional nature". -- p. 14.

"[By] The Rev. D.N. Henderson".
Includes bibliographical references.
"The following papers are a collection of [five] essays that were written at the University of Oxford during the author's sabbatical from parochial ministry during the 1996/97 academic year. ... I aspired to understand more precisely the nature of the Anglican Church's propensity to accommodate the values and norms of its wider culture. Along with many other faithful Anglicans, I have been increasingly distressed to witness the Church bow more and more to the modern equivalent of the Roman Caesar". -- Intro.

Notes
"[By] Patricia Bays".
"This book is based on two sets of addresses: the Martin Memorial lectures entitled `The Compass Rose : Flowering of Fading ?', given at the College of Emmanuel and St. Chad in Saskatoon in May 1999, and three addresses on the theme 'Composing the Lord's Song', given at the diocese of Calgary's `Theology Alive' weekend in October 1999". -- Acknowledgements, p. 7.
"I believe that Anglicanism is characterized by a distinctive way of doing theology. And I believe that a tolerance for diversity is an integral part of being Anglican. So I believe that our current struggles and debates are essential to being who we are, and I am hopeful that our diversity will strengthen us as we respond to God's call to be part of the church, the body of Christ. In `Anglican Diversity', I will articulate a foundation for this belief, then explore how such an Anglican identity can help us to respond to the challenges of the twenty-first century". -- Intro., p. 10.
Includes bibliographical references and bibliography, pp. 126-128.
Contents: Acknowledgements -- Introduction -- The Strange Land -- The Anglican Church: Yesterday and Today -- The Lord's Song -- Looking to the Future in Worship -- Looking to the Future in Ministry -- Social and Ethical Issues -- Living with People of Other Denominations and Faiths -- Authority in the Anglican Communion -- Conclusion: What is the Future of the Anglican Communion ? -- Appendix A: A Response to the 1998 Lambeth Conference of Bishops / Anglican Association of Biblical Scholars -- Bibliography..

"As a self-described introvert, John has given us a treatment of evangelism that is both sensitive and sensible. He is very aware of the anxiety that `normal' people can feel when it comes to telling others about their personal faith. His book is experientially illustrated, methodologically balanced, and biblically rooted. The biblical journey takes us through Babylon, focuses on Jesus, and rejoices in Paul's enthusiasm for the gospel. There is a chapter addressing the difficult evangelistic issue of Christians' attitudes toward other religions, and another dealing with the often ignored subject of hell". -- Foreword, p. 7.
