Rezension:

'This is a valuable and timely book, an asset to anyone who wishes to better understand the diverse and global nature of the Anglican Communion.' British and Irish Association for Mission Studies

'Kevin Ward does us all great service in this new book.' Church Times

'This is a panoramic work, and one that should find a place in every Anglican college library, and that of anyone concerned to understand the Anglican Communion and how it has come to be as a many-cultured global fellowship.' Journal of Anglican Studies

Vom Verlag:

Anglicanism can be seen as irredeemably English. In this book Kevin Ward questions that assumption. He explores the character of the African, Asian, Oceanic, Caribbean and Latin American churches which are now a majority in the world-wide communion, and shows how they are decisively shaping what it means to be Anglican. While emphasising the importance of colonialism and neo-colonialism for explaining the globalisation of Anglicanism, Ward does not focus predominantly on the Churches of Britain and N. America; nor does he privilege the idea of Anglicanism as an 'expansion of English Christianity'. At a time when Anglicanism faces the danger of dissolution Ward explores the historically deep roots of non-Western forms of Anglicanism, and the importance of the diversity and flexibility which has so far enabled Anglicanism to develop cohesive yet multiform identities around the world.
