Notes
"[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.

"[T]he essential quality of Anglicanism is to be found in a temper of mind -- almost an ethos -- which is easily recognizable even if it is less easy to define. If this is true then the essays in this book have a real importance, for they describe, in different ways, what the contributors found so attractive in the Anglican Church that they chose to give their allegiance to it rather than to any other part of the Catholic Church. .... These 'converts' did not choose Christianity lightly, nor did they find their home within the Anglican Communion without prayerful thought. The personal experiences which they describe so movingly have therefore a very real importance for us all:". -- Foreword.
