Item description for The Transformation of Anglicanism: From State Church to Global Communion by William L. Sachs...

This book examines the various contexts - historical, social, cultural, and ideological - which have shaped the modern efforts of the Anglican tradition at self-understanding. The author's thesis is that modernity and world mission have changed Anglicanism in ways that are deep and pervasive, just as other Christian traditions have also been profoundly affected by worldwide extension. In the case of the Anglican tradition, however, a distinctive way of relating Christianity to local culture and a distinctive kind of indigenous leader produced a church identity different from other forms of Christendom. Dr Sachs' aim is to contrast Anglicanism both with the style of Roman Catholicism and with the characteristically Protestant emphasis upon individual conversion apart from concern for the Church and its tradition.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Transformation of Anglicanism: From State Church to Global Communion?

Anglican Tradition and Identity  Jan 6, 2009
William Sachs, a professor at VTS, has written on the nature of Anglican identity amidst the changing landscape of modernity. He reveals the tension between tradition and adaptation and examines the Anglican 'search for secure identity' in many contexts, and revisits Anglo-catholic and Protestant debate. Great sources & index. He cites women's ordination and/or gays as a cause for the church's fragmentation and 'loss of coherence'; and says modernity has not provided resolution. These historical shifts in circumstance and belief could be more energetically and imaginatively examined in a future volume.
