"This book draws together studies of various aspects of Anglican ecclesiology written over the past 15 years, several of which were originally published as separate articles. All have been revised and updated, and some have been expanded with significant new material. The chapters are intended to remain complete in themselves, and to that end occasional overlaps have been retained" (p. viii). "A brief comment on the term `Anglican ecclesiology' is needed at the outset. Much of this book is concerned specifically with aspects of the ecclesiology of the Church of England. Those are, of course, in turn, aspects of wider Anglican ecclesiology since the Church of England is an Anglican church ... It should not be supposed, however, that these features of the Church of England's ecclesiology are necessarily typical of the Anglican Communion more generally. Some of the chapters examine aspects of the ecclesiology of the Communion as a whole, but they do not attempt to look in detail at the ecclesiology of other individual Anglican churches" (p. x). -- Foreword.

"Where is authority located in the Church of England ? Who decides how to react when tradition is challenged ? .... [The author] attempts to restate the theological and practical role of bishops, in relation to the clergy, laity, synods and councils, the Free Churches and the Roman Catholic Church. Until their position as leaders is clarified, the voice of the bishops in the common search for unity will be unconvincing, and the Anglican Church will be in danger of losing its identity". -- back cover.

"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.

Report of the Archbishops' Group on the Episcopate chaired by Sheila Cameron.
"The Group which has produced this report, under the chairmanship of Chancellor Sheila Cameron, QC, was originally the Archbishops' Group on Women and the Episcopate, appointed in 1986 at the request of the Standing Committee of the General Synod. In July 1986 it was renamed the Archbishops' Group on the Episcopate when its terms of reference were enlarged to take the form: "To consider the nature and function of the episcopate in the Church, including a particular examination of the theological issues bearing upon the ordination of women to the episcopate." The widening of the terms of reference also meant that matters of concern to the Dioceses Commission came within its remit, particularly in relation to the role of the suffragan bishop.

"The House of Bishops undertook to reflect upon the debate in the General Synod in February 1985 on the Nature of Christian Belief and to report back to the Synod. The Statement, together with the Exposition of it, published in this booklet is the response by the House of Bishops to those undertakings." -- [Preface].
"This Statement and the Exposition which accompanies it take their place within a long story. The nature of Christian belief, and the characters of that assent to the Christian faith which is to be required of ministers, ordained or lay, who are given authority to teach in the Church of England, have been keenly discussed for more than a hundred years. The immediate origin of this Report lies in a debate in General Synod on 13 February 1985. It is the response of the House of Bishops to that debate. It is, therefore, in part a reply to particular questions, asked in a particular context. In part reflection on some of the wider underlying issues. The questions asked concern the corporate affirmation by the House of Bishops of the teaching of the Church of England. But there are also related issues of responsibility for doctrine within our Church, and of the procedures by which matters of belief are best considered. On these points answers must grow out of a wider process of prayer, scholarship, study and debate; and the Exposition offers only a preliminary contribution, aimed at guiding the Church of England in that process". -- p. 1.

Notes
Continuing a series on Anglican artists, this time focussing of the work of Bishop Frank Sargeant, former Bishop of Lambeth, who talks about his art. Asked if "a bishop [is] a good candidate for such expressions of imagination" he replied: "Well I suppose a good as anyone else. The more important thing is that a bishop should have some form of creative relaxation, whatever it may be. A friend of mine said that it was important to have a consuming interest, which was not the source of earning one's living. Perhaps bishops would not go so far as that as their work takes up most of their lives, but it is necessary to have a form of relaxation and recreation. The skill of observation is very necessary in the vocation of a bishop as it is part of the skill of a prophet to stop and see what is really happening. I would like to think that bishops have a vision of the big scene and `see in their heads' where they want to lead their flocks".

"This is the second report of the Review Group appointed by the Archbishops in 1999 to consider the future needs and resourcing of bishops. In their first report, published in June 2001, the Group addressed the key questions of how bishops should be resourced and it advanced a set of of appropriateness, equity, and transparency for the Church in the twenty-first century. In this second and related report, the Group considers how these principles might apply to the ministries of the two Archbishops. The Review Group has analysed the needs which both archbishops have in terms of their unique ministries and the ways in which their ministries are inter-linked, particularly in relationship to the leadership of the Church of England. On the basis of this understanding, it puts forward a series of proposals which show how both Archbishops might be supported in their work as Diocesan, National and International levels, in addition to enabling them to develop their individual ministries." -- back cover.

"This is the first report of the Review Group appointed by the Archbishops in 1999 to consider the future needs and resourcing of bishops. It is the first time in which this important -- and sometimes controversial -- subject has been independently examined. The report considers the issues underlying the fair and effective support of the episcopate from a range of perspectives -- theological, personal, practical and financial. It advances a series of recommendations which aim to address the question of needs and the resources available to meet them within the broader pattern of the Church's overall resources and potential in the first decade of the twenty-first century. The Review Group has aimed to develop principles of appropriateness, equity, and transparency and to suggest a comprehensive but flexible system for supporting bishops in leading and serving the Church. The Group also considers the important issue of bishops' houses. This report will be a key document in the debate about these issues." -- back cover.

Much of the confusion could be alleviated with some careful thought about the role of the Bishop and an appreciation of his relationship to the local church community. It may seem that the problems are being exaggerated [but] experience and discussion with others suggest otherwise. Having used the opportunity to consider the role of the episcopate we shall be able to examine a number of practical questions with the aim of making the Bishop as welcome as possible." -- p. 3.
