Publisher's Description

Part of One Church offers a classical understanding of the Church of England’s identity and its place as part of the ‘One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church’.

Though not opposed in principle to women's ordination to the priesthood, Roger Greenacre articulates with creative courtesy the ecclesiological reasons why so many cannot accept its implementation in the Church of England when it lacks the consent of the wider Church. In doing so he addresses issues that remain topical and significant.

Roger’s frame of reference is wide: his thinking and writing are deeply enriched by the Anglican tradition and his hope is that its distinctive heritage might be brought into communion with the Church Catholic.

Author Bio

Roger Greenacre was a scholarly and much-loved Anglican priest and Benedictine oblate who exercised a distinguished ministry in London, Paris and Chichester, and on the French Riviera. His contribution to AnglicanRC relations was honoured by the French state and earned him a Lambeth Doctorate. A residentiary canon of Chichester Cathedral for 25 years, he taught church history and liturgy at the theological college there and served on the Liturgical Commission. He died in 2011. Colin Podmore is Director of Forward in Faith.
