Good Disagreement? : Grace and Truth in a Divided Church (Paperback)
about this item
There are a whole range of issues currently troubling the Church of England, from gay marriage and women bishops to how much it should speak out on social justice. Can the Anglican Communion worldwide find ways of disagreeing profoundly on these and other concerns, without splitting off from each other? Is it inevitable that it becomes a collection of warring tribes? With a new emphasis on "good disagreement" coming from the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, this book is a timely and essential resource for the Church to explore ways of maintaining unity despite diversity, and is being published in the lead up to the discussions that will take place in the Church of England in 2016. The book contains a wide range of contributions from across the Church of England, and includes chapters by leading theologians, including Tom Wright, Andrew Goddard and Andrew Atherstone.
