C of E: The State It's in - The Past and the Present - Paperback

2006, ISBN: 0281058458

Paperback, [EAN: 9780281058457], Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge, Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge, Book, [PU: Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge], 2006-09-22, Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge, Hells bells! The turn-of-the-millennium UK church-attendance figures confirmed what many believed all along: that the church is still in decline, or as George Carey so dramatically put it in 1998, is "bleeding to death". Although many Britons would claim to be "C of E", it seems the allegiance stretches only as far as "hatches, matches and despatches"--being baptised, married and buried in Anglican ceremonies. But why? Furlong has set about trying to fathom this out, and "to make sense of the Church I belong to" along the way. The result is a beautifully engaging consideration of the Church's history, from its break with Rome to the present day. It provides a thorough-going, objective history, as well as a vivid snapshot of the present and a passionate glance towards the future. En route, Furlong has visited many different churches and canvassed a wide range of opinion. And although she has stumbled upon much dead wood, she is heartened by the green shoots--the tireless belief and work of church-goers across the country, who help to shape and inform parish (and national) life. Her eagerness to see these grow is entirely infectious, and her call for a typically English "via media" convincing. In the wake of the call by the Church of England for "root-and-branch reform", this is a serious, informative and intelligent study. Yet it is a fascinating personal quest, too. It must surely prove to be a crucial offering in the ongoing debate. Here endeth a quite unmissable lesson. --Brian Draper, 928530, England, 928536, 18th Century, 928538, 19th Century, 928540, 20th Century, 928534, Ancient, 928542, London, 928544, Medieval, 928546, Norman, 928548, Tudor & Stuart, 928504, Europe, 927728, History, 927726, Subjects, 916520, Books, 953420, Religion & Spirituality, 953638, Buddhism, 953666, Christian Books & Bibles, 954506, Earth-Based Religions, 954528, Fiction, 954542, Hinduism, 954560, Islam, 954588, Judaism, 954652, New Age, 954710, Occult, 954756, Other Eastern Religions & Sacred Texts, 954776, Other Religions, Practices & Sacred Texts, 16045781, Religious Art, 954802, Religious Studies, 954820, Spirituality, 927726, Subjects, 916520, Books, 953880, Anglican, 953876, Protestantism, 953666, Christian Books & Bibles, 927726, Subjects, 916520, Books, 15306401, Christianity, 15306381, Religious Studies, 15306041, Humanities, 15115321, Textbooks, 927726, Subjects, 916520, Books

Title:

C of E: The State It's in - The Past and the Present

ISBN:

0281058458

The Church of England is one of the great institutions of the nation: closely enmeshed in its history, its politics and, above all, its religious beliefs. Could this precious resource be in decline? Falling numbers, particularly since the 1960s has made this become an urgent question. Accepting this, the Church has embarked upon extensive reforms to try to stem the loss of members. A clear and wide-ranging account of the history and development of the Church of England, is followed by a survey of the issues and opportunities the church faces in the 21st century. This came out at the turn of the century and has been updated by Wesley Carr, former Dean of Westminster, for the 2006 edition.
