Notes
A review, entitled "100-year-old Shaw drama shows shades of Lambeth" of the George Bernard Shaw play "Getting Married". "I had no inkling taking my seat in The Royal George Theatre at the Shaw Festival in Niagara-on-the-Lake [Ontario] that what I was really doing was attending a backgrounder on the Anglican Church's Lambeth Conference. But then again that simply reflects the enduring relevance of British dramatist and social critic, George Bernard Shaw. 'Getting Married' is a farce about the twists, turns and angst over the state of marriage in Edwardian England ...". "Of course, Edwardian England is not a complete parallel for today, and in a real way this is a play about feminism, not gay rights but there is a thoughtful reflection on the role of marriage in human fulfillment and the roles, for good and bad, in church and state arguing about what does and what does not work when it comes to saying a marriage is valid or not".

"We are a group of theologians who work mostly in a university context, and in theological education. .... Out of a basic belief that the Church of England should be able to move to a position of greater toleration of faithful, stable gay relationships, we want to lay out for those outside the academy, as well as within it, reasons why we believe this is a debate worth having in the church. It is the conviction of the authors of this volume that, for all that this is an issue on which there are serious matters of principle on both sides, and for all that the symbolic nature of the confrontation of Christian faith and modernity is very acute, this is not actually a decisive question for the survival of Christian faith itself, nor for the survival of the Church of England and of Anglicanism more widely". -- Intro., pp. 2-3.

Notes
"The Church of England, at its General Synod Meeting in York in July [1997], decided that further discussion about human sexuality should be encouraged in the Church on the basis of the 1991 House of Bishops Statement `Issues in Human Sexuality', agreeing that the Church's present policy on homosexuality `was not the last word on the subject'." Archbishop George Carey "spoke out against `sexual activity outside marriage'. He announced that next year's Lambeth Conference would be asked to set up an international commission into human sexuality'. ... He declared: `I do not find any justification, from the Bible or the entire Christian tradition, for sexual activity outside marriage. Thus, same-sex relationships in my view cannot be on a par with marriage'."

"Edited by Duncan Dormor, Jack McDonald and Jeremy Caddick".
Includes bibliographical references.
"Modernity is a set of questions, preoccupations and anxieties, and Anglicanism is equipped to engage with them in what one of our authors calls `conversational' mode. Anglicanism `answers' modernity because it has bothered to listen to it and thinks it is worth talking with. In a good conversation, something is genuinely contributed towards a common future, but always in response to the reality of what's presented, rather than in lecturing or preaching mode". -- Preface, p. viii.

"[B]y Spencer Ervin, Esq."
"The justification offered for this essay is a double one: first, that there seems not to be available to Anglicans any concise statement of the marriage law of the western Church as accepted by the Anglican Communion; and second, that it is important for Anglicans to become more aware than they appear to be of the conflict between this law and the radical departure from it made by the American legislation of 1946 and 1949" -- p. 5.

Notes
"The Commission was appointed by His Grace the Archbishop of Canterbury in December, 1945, with the following Terms of Reference: 'To consider the practice of artificial human insemination with special reference to its theological, moral, social, psychological, and legal implications, and to report to the Archbishop'." -- p. 5.
Commission chaired by the Right Rev. and Rt. Hon. J.W.C. Wand, Lord Bishop of London.
Includes bibliographical references and bibliography, p. 68-70.
"In the end, however, the judgement we reach on the subject of A.I.D. will be shaped and determined by our view of the nature of marriage. If, with the Church, we hold it to be that exclusive contract and union 'for better for worse', the total commitment till death of each spouse to the other, then the part of the unknown donor must seem an unlawful intrusion, and the part of the wife -- however innocent she may be of evil intent or motive -- a breach of her marriage vows. We are not remotely concerned to judge individuals .... we have found it impossible to reconcile with the practice of A.I.D. the doctrine of marriage which we have learned from the Church. We are sure that, no less than ourselves, those who commend that practice desire to see and to safeguard happy, successful marriages. We differ from them in our view of what marriage is: and the difference is fundamental". -- pp. 56-57.

"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.
