Publisher's Description

The Anglo-Catholic movement within the Church of England enjoyed a golden era beginning in the aftermath of the First World War and continuing to the middle of the 20th century. Its influence was widespread in all areas of local, national and international church life, and the renowned Anglo Catholic Congress, which held a number of provincial gatherings, became a pioneering evangelistic and teaching agency that was effective in a number of areas: inner city mission, contemporary biblical scholarship, social reform, women's suffrage, liturgical creativity, sponsorship of the arts, innovative church architecture, religious life and spiritual direction, initiatives in Christian unity and more. This illustrated history, co-published with the Society of Faith, charts the achievements of those remarkable years and provides a valuable record for all students of church history.

Editorial Reviews

John Gunstone's timely book sets out the history of the Congress Movement and places it firmly in the context of Anglo-Catholicism at the time. Although many of the facts surrounding the Congresses are known, this volume for the first time sets them out logically and shows how one meeting followed another, with extensive and useful quotation from the speakers, many distinguished, at each gathering ... The author's easy style takes the reader seamlessly from topic to topic. It is strongly recommend to all members.
'This book is highly recommended to all interested in church history, particularly those focusing on movements and doctrine ... The book can serve secular as well as church historians ... He captures well such matters in inner city squalor, fear of communism, massive unemployment, the rise of women, and the breakup of families. [It] covers institutional history ... [and] contains solid intellectual history, for he ably describes the debates between Anglo-Catholics and their opponents.'
