Between 1700 and 1850 the Church of England was the among the most powerful and influential religious, social, and political forces in Britain. This was also a momentous time for the British Empire, during which it developed and then lost the North American colonies, extended into India, and settled the colonies of Australia and New Zealand. Public understanding of this expanding empire was influentially created and promulgated by the Church of England as a consequence of its missionary engagement with these colonies, and its role in providing churches for British settlers. Rowan Strong examines how that Anglican Christian understanding of the British Empire shaped the identities both of the people living in British colonies in North America, Bengal, Australia, and New Zealand during this period - including colonists, indigenous peoples, and Negro slaves - and of the English in Britain.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This is a fine work, discerning, among the pomposities of eighteenth-century episcopal sermons and the pieties of the Missionary Register, a Christianity aspiring to be faithful in its time. * Dan O'Connor, The Expository Times *
...an important and well-argued study... * Ian Breward, Ormond College (Australia) Journal of Ecclesiastical History *
Rowan Strong's study deserves to be widely read * Ormond College (Australia), Journal of Ecclesiastical History *
By defining the period 1700-1850 as a distinctive one in the history of the Anglican missions, Strong has made an important contribution to church history and the history of missions. * Jeffrey Cox, Theology *
