"[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.

Third edition includes new biographies: Michael Ramsey, Donald Coggan, Robert Runcie and George Carey.
"The publishers and Edward Carpenter invited me to update his fine book for the centenary celebrations of the arrival of St. Augustine at Canterbury in 597. I was delighted to accept, but the time available was very short; so we agreed that there should be no alterations in his text, as completed in 1971, even though in some cases things would naturally not be written in quite the same way today. Only the final chapter, 'Quo Vadis, Cantuar ?', has been omitted .... [Carpenter's text] remains an invaluable guide to a remarkable history. To it I have added an introduction and two final chapters spanning the years from 1961 to 1997, as well as a short additional bibliography." -- Preface to Third Edition.

Notes
"This is the thirty-sixth volume of the series, 'Studies in Church History', published by the Ecclesiastical History Society whose aim is 'to foster the study of Ecclesiastical History viewed in a wide historical context and broad inter-disciplinary relationship, and without regard to denominational differences or divisions'. This volume contains 'the eight main papers delivered at the summer conference .. and at the January meeting .. together with some of the communications offered in the Summer' (p. ix). The theme of these conferences was 'Christmas and the Holy Land'. This theme suggests a number of responses: Holy places and buildings, crusades and the intifada ... Other papers trace the influence of the Holy Land on peoples and events far beyond the boundaries of Palestine" (p. [97]). "There are a number of papers about pilgrims. .... Garth Turner's 'Archbishop Lang's visit to the Holy Land in 1931' (9 pp. 343-357) describes a twentieth century pilgrim's visit to the Holy Land in the time of the British Mandate" (p. 98-99).
