From the Celtic and Saxon saints whose vision was to shape he English church, to the prophetic voices of our own day, this splendid collection draws on over a thousand years of spiritual writing and provides an engaging portrait of the rich diversity of Anglican worship, doctrine and life. The classical Anglican synthesis of scripture, reason and tradition finds various expression in the writings of over two hundred figures including Augustine, Hilda, Bede, Anselm, Wycliffe, Cranmer, the seventeenth-century divines, Wesley, Newman, Evelyn Underhill, Austin Farrer, C S Lewis, Desmond Tutu and many more. Beginning with the roots of Anglican spirituality and the shaping of Anglican identity, this anthology explores the Anglican understanding of worship, the sacraments, prayer, mission, the Bible, the Church and living as a Christian in the world. A Feast of Anglican Spirituality celebrates the heritage of Anglicanism in all its breadth and variety, its triumphs and its failures, its ability to recognize other points of view and, above all, its indebtedness to the wider Christian tradition of which it is a part.
