Publisher's Description

The classical Anglican understanding of a bishop is expressed in the Canons of the Church of England with the phrase ‘father in God’ – wording that remains unchanged by the decision to ordain women as bishops.

This volume sets out, in a non-polemic way, the understanding of priestly and episcopal ministry from the biblical, historical and theological viewpoints of those who defend a traditional view of priesthood as male, while being fully a part of the Church of England.

It incorporates elements of the landmark book Consecrated Women? and brings the discussion fully up to date in light of the General Synod’s decision to ordain women to the episcopate in 2014.

Leading figures explore the topic from a range of perspectives, including Martin Warner, the Bishop of Chichester; on living in love and charity with your neighbour; Jonathan Baker, the Bishop of Fulham, on consecrated women; Emma Forward, a member of General Synod, on feminism in a post-feminist age; Geoffrey Rowell, formerly Bishop of Europe, on mission, scripture, tradition and church unity; and Aidan Nicholls OP, a Dominican priest and academic, offers a Roman Catholic perspective.
