"Was the Oxford Movement a spiritual movement which enriched the Church or England or was it an alien movement which sought to persuade Englishmen to barter their spiritual heritage in a worthless exchange ? Dr. David Samuel, Director of Church Society and member of the Protestant Reformation Society's committee, shows that the Oxford Movement began with its eyes on Rome, and ever moved closer to that goal. ..... It has led to a despising of the Reformation, radical division in the Church of England, and a loss of Biblical authority (with the attendant moral downgrade). The Oxford Movement has worked from within the Church of England to alienate it from its true genius and spiritual heritage. It has done enormous spiritual harm, the effects of which are still with us today". -- back cover.
