"It is often said that a new era in Anglican thought began with the publication of 'Lex Mundi' in 1889, and it is no less certain that this era ended when the Second World War began in 1939. It has been my aim in this series of Hale Lectures to trace the development of Anglican theology in this era, now that twenty years have passed since its conclusion and we are able to see it in perspective". -- Preface, p. vii.

"It is not true that there is no distinctive Anglican doctrine. But the discovery of it may require some patience in reading and attending to a number of historical strands, in order to watch the way in which distinctiveness shows itself. The chapters in this book reflect on a number of well-known figures in Anglican history with this in mind; and I hope that some of the connections and echoes will be clear". -- Intro., p. 1.

"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. .
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.

"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.

"Christian people in all Communion, in most countries, are keenly aware of changing social and economic conditions. This fact is signalized by pronouncements of Church leaders. Such statements flow from a proper understanding of the gospel and of Christian doctrine. That is the reason and justification for Christian concern. Christianity is intended to affect life and the conditions of life. Sometimes, and in some places, the Church has not been keenly enough interested. Today, in revulsion against pagan revolutionary movements, the Church is forced to think of these matters. As well, too, she is interested in the good life for all, as part of the pattern of the Kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven. ....
We have been asked to publish the most relevant sections of our recent Annual Report in Bulletin form, this making them available for study group purposes. .... Perhaps the most useful booklet in this field published during 1942 was `Christianity and Social Order' by the Archbishop of Canterbury. It is obtainable from the G.B.R.E. Department, 604 Jarvis Street, Toronto, at 25 cents.
It should be noted that this document below does not place the Church on the side of any particular economic system. Nor do the `Statements' by Archbishops, Popes or Church courts or Church Commissions do so. ....
The great need today is that the mass of people, not merely a few leaders, may come to understand these problems and come to a common will upon their solution. The greater need, however, is that they view them in the light of a Christian truth. Then only is the common will likely to be directed towards true ends. This is the people's day. We hope it will be a Christian people's day.
Extremely pertinent to the social scene today is the Statement on Church and Labour. Church people should understand more of the aspirations and aims of Organized Labour and should be able to read those aims intelligently into the needs of Industry as a whole and into the needs of the workers and consumers of the world, organized or unorganized, as a whole". -- Editor's Note, p. .
