This summer John Macquarrie retires from his professional chair at Oxford after a long and distinguished career. As well as writing many books which have become classics, and pushing the boundaries of theological exploration further, he has always been devotedly a churchman, and this new collection of papers deals with many topics of particular interest at present. Those essays dealing with theology include 'Pilgrimage in Theology', 'Why Theology?', 'Theology and Ideology' and 'Continuing Influences from the Last Century'. Those on the church survey the Anglican theological tradition, the theological implications of the Oxford Movement, pride in the church and ministry in the church, the last a topic which leads into the third group. Essays on ministry include 'Politics as Lay Ministry'.
