Timely and incisive, this examination of the current state of Sydney's Anglican Church argues that the appointment of Peter Jensen as archbishop signals a new Reformation. Jensen and his supporters are implementing reforms to lead the church away from progressive policies and towards extreme conservative evangelism, a local event illustrative of the rise of conservatism in the international religious community. Presenting the struggle for power in the world of faith, this volume addresses a major shift in the direction of the Anglican church that is feeding into and off of a worldwide split between fundamentalists and progressives and takes into account the effects such a cultural divide could have on other dioceses.
