Church and State are institutions whose ultimate purposes, although distinct, are not necessarily irreconcilable. It is in the English experience of the establishment of religion that so many of the historic interconnections between church and state have been embodied and brought forward.
A Broad and Living Way, while it draws freely upon the story of the church in Western Europe and upon patterns of engagement in different parts of the world today, is primarily concerned to look from the inside at the Church of England - its story, its tradition, its experience.
The bedrock of the church's life is to be found in the dynamic of scripture, tradition and reason. But there is within the experience of the Church of England a tradition of comprehension and liberality which, if it can be rediscovered, may yet serve the church as it attempts to pursue 'a broad and living way ... into the heart of the people'.
