What makes the Anglican way of being "church" distinctive and perhaps unique? To answer this question, Paul Avis sets contemporary worldwide Anglicanism against its historical background and compares and contrasts the Anglican approach with that of other churches, particularly the Roman Catholic and Protestant Churches. Avis provides a clear exposition of Anglican ecclesiology structured around relevant topics which serves as a guide to Anglicans in these troubled times, while also explaining Anglicanism to Non-Anglicans. The main focus is on the nature of the Anglican Communion, the role of bishops in Anglicanism, the theology of priesthood and the ordination of women as well as Anglican Eucharistic theology. Being published in time for the Lambeth Conference 2008, Paul Avis provides an update on the basics of the Anglican way of being church which may help to find the common ground on which the present conflicts can be solved.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Dr. Avis is well qualified to produce such a study, for he is widely read in Anglican History and in classical Anglican divinity. ..This work deserves to be read through from start to finish... This is...an excellent resouce book, in which may be found the principal texts that in various ways inform and govern the Anglican churches ...his chapter entitled 'Anglicanism and Eucharistic ecclesiology' is truly illuminating"
Ecclesiastic Law Journal --Sanford Lakoff
