Publisher's Description

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.

Editorial Reviews


"A superb collection of writings."--Cistercian Studies Quarterly


"Review from previous edition a remarkable work of scholarship and dedication ... will provide intellectual stimulus and inspiration to those fortunate Christians who rest in the assurance of unquestioned faith, those who see themselves as seekers after truth, and all who have an interest in the spiritual, historical and literary heritage of what is still our national church."--P. D. James, The Sunday Telegraph


"This is a book which is going to prove itself indispensable: in the first place to Anglicans, to help them discover and undertsnad something of the tradition they inherit, and then to Christians of other traditions, not only in the English-speaking world but also in the rest of Europe, where Lutherans, Catholics and Orthodox are often intrigued to inquire into this thing called Anglicanism."--A. M. Allchin, The Tablet
