Fragmented Faith? Summary

Fragmented Faith?: Exposing the Fault-Lines in the Church of England by Revd Jeff Astley

At the dawn of the third millennium, Rowan Williams the 104th Archbishop of Canterbury faces the daunting challenge of leading the highly diversified and fragmented Church of England. The very essence of Anglicanism remains in the capability of embracing alternative perspectives in teaching and practice. "Fragmented Faith?" draws attention to three fault-lines within the Church of England: the continuing differences between evangelicals and Catholics, liberals and conservatives and charismatics and non-charismatics. But the fragmentation is more profound than these distinctions of church orientation. This well-informed and perceptive analysis shows that the real divisions are between the generations, between the sexes and between the laity and the clergy.
