"[B]y Spencer Ervin".
"Copyright 1964 by Spencer Ervin". -- verso of t.-p.
"Vol. 1 of a series on the government of the Churches of the Anglican Communion". -- p. [vi].
"The series to which this brochure is the introduction presents to Anglicans, in separate brochures, an account of the history of each self-governing national Church or province of the Anglican Communion, followed in each case by an account of its polity, with references to the canonical and other sources. The history is ancillary, its object being only to further an understanding of the polity to which it relates. The purpose of the series is to give to each main component of the Anglican Communion a better knowledge and understanding of the others, and by discovery of excellences and deficiencies in governmental structures and practices to facilitate improvement. Brochures on The Church of the Province of South Africa, The Episcopal Church in Scotland, and the Church of Ireland have been written and will be published in rapid sequence after the appearance of this Introduction. The account of the Anglican Church of Canada is in preparation. Those of other provinces will appear as rapidly as possible". -- Preface, p. ix.
"Polity is a general term which refers equally to the general form of a government, secular or ecclesiastical, to its framework, or to its administration. In this series it will refer, with one exception, only to the structure and processes of government, that is, to the framework and administration: a limited part of the whole field, for the polity of the Church extends to the ordering and regulation of all matters with which the Church as a society is concerned. Holy Matrimony has been exceptionally included as of vital importance". -- p. 1.
Includes bibliographical references but NO index.

"This book sets out to provide an exact and comprehensive survey of the whole question of divorce and the related problem of the re-marriage of divorced persons; and of the changes and developments in the Church's practice through the years. [The author ...] begins with a historical retrospect of the Church of England's position in this matter, and passes on to recent Anglican developments. He then looks at churches of the Anglican Communion overseas and makes plain their own varying attitudes, with particular reference to the new canons of the Church in Canada. After that, he considers the same questions in an ecumenical context, as they affect other churches. The recent report, `Putting Asunder', is then considered and explained, and he concludes with a thought-provoking chapter on `A Marriage Discipline for the Future'." -- back cover.

"This is the third of a series on making moral decisions in the light of orthodox Christian ethics". -- p. [2].
"This little book is about one of the most common and painful moral issues of our times, divorce. What I write I offer as a priest who hopes to be of help to anyone who for one reason or another is confronted with this divisive and often terrible moral problem. As will soon be obvious, I think that there are reasons for divorce that Christians (who believe in lifelong marital vows) can accept. The reasons I give may seem unjustified or they may prove convincing and helpful. But in either case, my arguments for justifying divorce are not those now popular in American society". -- p. 3.

Includes bibliographical references and index.
Bibliography: p. 277-281.
"In this work an attempt is made to survey comprehensively the teaching and practice of the Church of England from the Reformation to the present day in respect of divorce and remarriage. Two main views are traced through the period: one derives from the pre-Reformation Western tradition, according to which marriage, once validly contracted, is indissoluble; the other derives from the teaching of the Continental Reformers, who regarded the marriage-bond as capable of dissolution by unfaithfulness or desertion (p. vii)". "[T]he present work in its original form was a thesis which gained in 1953 the award of the Doctorate of Philosophy in the University of London" (pp. viii-ix). -- Preface.
Contents: Preface dated Rowledge Vicarage, December 1957 / A.R. Winnett -- Acknowledgements -- I. The Mediaeval Background and the Continental Reformers -- II. The English Reformation and the 'Reformatio Legum' -- Appendix to Chapter II: Extracts from the section 'De Adulteriis et Divortiis' in the 'Reformatio Legum' -- III.

"History books tend to be written for one of two reasons. The author is seeking either to correct what was wrong in a previous teller's tale, or to tell a new tale, which will cast new light on historical developments and open up new fields of enquiry. This book on the Mothers' Union falls largely into the second category. The audience for which it is written is primarily that of historians of women, the Church and the British Empire. .... the book explores the identity and nature of the organisation as a way of understanding not only the impact of tremendous social, religious and political changes on the largest worldwide group of ordinary Christian laywomen, but also -- critically -- their participation in these changes. It is in fact that dreaded thing, an institutional history, but one that seeks to avoid the sins of being dutiful and inward-looking by situating the subject in current historiography from a number of appropriate fields. Through its use of primary sources and its interdisciplinary approach it offers new insights into women's lives both as wives and mothers and as political and religious participants in Britain and other parts of the world over the course of more than a century. Before describing some of the areas to which this study of the Mothers' Union contributes, it is, however, important to understand the nature, limitations and opportunities of the primary sources in which this work is rooted". -- Intro.

Issue of IAFN Newsletter included as part of the Anglican World for Advent 2001. An editorial and series of short reports from different agencies and countries about family breakdown. "The articles in this newsletter tell of increased marriage and relationship breakdown, more children on the streets, more despair fuelling alcohol and drug abuse. Many refer to the root causes of poverty, the AIDS pandemic, and, of course, war ... But the picture is not all bleak. An article from Canada points out that a marriage breakdown may, in some cases, represent a new start, free from hidden violence and abuse. Many of the articles tell of vigorous efforts being made by churches and projects from all over the Anglican Communion to help the casualties of family breakdown".

"An Agreed Statement by the Second Anglican-Roman Catholic International Commission ARCIC II". -- title-page.
"Popularly, it had been a fairly common perception that Anglicans and Roman Catholics differ profoundly in their approach to moral issues. In this Agreed Statement -- the first such statement from any international theological dialogue on moral issues -- these perceptions are brought into question. The statement describes a vision of the Christian life and its moral implications which is shared at root by Anglicans and Roman Catholics. On only two moral issues is there documented disagreement between our communions. Theological dialogue demonstrates how the different emphases on these issues and in other areas of Christian morality have arisen through the two communions living in separation since the break caused by the Reformation in the sixteenth century. This Agreed Statement offers the Churches new possibilities in working together so that they may speak with one voice on the essential moral issues which face our contemporary world". -- back cover.
