Theology Reforming Society tells the story of Anglican social theology from its roots in the writings and work of F.D. Maurice and the Christian Socialists, including Charles Kingsley and John Ludlow, and on to the work of William Temple. It also looks beyond Temple to the work of the Board for Social Responsibility, and to some of the theologians and church leaders who have continued its witness since then. Referring to the wider ecumenical context in order to draw out the distinctive features of the tradition of Anglican Social Theology, the book provides an important and comprehensive account for all those interested in Anglican theology, social and political theology and Christian ethics.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Stephen Spencer is to be congratulated on assembling such an excellent group of speakers, who gave stimulating and engaging papers to a broad-ranging audience, and have promptly produced revised versions of their papers for publication. This is a worthy successor to Tawney's first lectures, and the long succession of volumes since 1922." -- William Jacob, Chair of the Henry Scott Holland Trustees
