Riassunto: This major new anthology of Anglican spiritual writings was compiled by a trio of the Church's most widely respected scholars.
The selections demonstrate by example the Anglican tenet that different strands of spirituality can be held together in a creative tension that enhances the overall strength of the church. Their variety reflects the worldwide nature of the Anglican communion and includes men and women authors from such places as the United Kingdom, the United States, India, Australia, Sri Lanka and Tanzania.
This volume is a shining witness to the impact that Anglican spirituality has had on Christianity throughout the world. Featuring a broad spectrum of literary genres (letters, devotional essays, poetry, reflections on the Scriptures, etc.) it will make a superb reference work.
