"To be sure, Christian Socialism has always been the faith of a small minority. But these gallant men and woman have had an influence far greater that their number would suggest because they thought deeply, felt passionately, and based their labours not upon any secular ideology, but upon Scripture and the creeds, remaining faithful throughout to the incarnationalism which has become the hallmark of Anglican theology. To study their efforts is to enter into a godly heritage which can help guide and sustain our own attempts to bring God's justice to the world". -- p. 2.

"The Episcopal Church and the worldwide Anglican Communion of which it is a part are, to use a phrase of Arnold Toynbee's, in a 'time of troubles'. Revisions of the Book of Common Prayer, radical questioning of the Incarnation ... This book is not directed to these problems, but to something more basic. We will be trying to assess the strengths and weaknesses of the Anglican Communion by taking inventory of its resources and direction -- in short, of its fundamental spirit. .... This book uses a special method to get at the spirit of Anglicanism, namely the study of three of its giants: Richard Hooker, Frederick Denison Maurice and William Temple. It is a method that, while chiefly theological in analysis, incorporates some history, biography, liturgical and pastoral concerns and spirituality in its interpretations. .... As a further step in the analysis of the contributions of Hooker, Maurice and Temple to the spirit of Anglicanism, we shall examine in a final chapter the emergence of a corporate and contemporary consciousness of Anglicanism. Our conclusion on the spirit of Anglicanism can best be illustrated by the decennial Lambeth Conferences, for nearly every meeting has wrestled with the problems of identity, image and the basic interrelationship of the churches making up the Anglican Communion". -- Preface.

"The Anglican Communion appears to be seeking to rule some in and some out on the grounds of `orthodoxy'. In that context, a discussion of the creed in worship may help to illustrate the relationships between doctrine, performance, and practice. This article suggests that F.D. Maurice's understanding of the use of the creed offers a way forward for Anglicans: the `performance' of the creed as a focus for the name of God becomes far more important than assent to propositions. This understanding might help Anglicans living with diversity while acknowledging an underlying baptismal unity. Reading the creed as a corporate hymn of praise to triune Love might encourage God-fearing people to live in humble adoration of the One who loves them -- without growing anxious about precisely what, or even whether, the other people who are singing God's praise `believe'."
