Item description for Wonderful and Confessedly Strange: Australian Essays in Anglican Ecclesiology by Bruce Kaye, Sarah MacNeil & Heather Thomson...
Concerned with vital issues of ecclesiology within Australian Anglicsanism, this books is both daring and controversial. It confronts the 'undiscussable' and in so doing brings together people who write from various contexts within the church. Its diversity of style and attitude relfects the lving richness and complexity of Australian Anglicanism today and also the problems and challenges. The book in four parts sets out the issues of methodology, looks at influences of the Austrlain Anglican inheritance, examines aspects of the institutional life of the Church, and, finally, focusses on the social and political contexts within which ecclesiology is sahped and created. The book is an 'essay', a conversation and a listening between theologians and, church members and member sof the church leadership. Consequently, it does not attmept to present a unified ecclesiology. As with the Christian community from which it stems, it seeks to engage with its divine-'wonderful and confessedly strange origins. Contributors are Anglicans from around Australia. Bruce Kaye is editor of the Journal of Anglican Studies.
