|Publisher's description: This is a brave book, full of hope and pervaded by the promise that insights from the Anglican past might yet carry us through the tumults of the Anglican present. Lorraine Cavanagh is chaplain at the University of Wales in Cardiff, and teaches at St Michael's College, Llandaff. She notes the 'participatory' element in Richard Hooker's teaching, and emphasises that Hooker 'takes tradition into the dynamic which informs history. This dynamic is the life of God manifested in Jesus Christ in whose ongoing life the Church is sacramentally transformed and in which it finds its true vocation.|

from Modern Believing Vol 50:3
Why the Church needs Liberal Theology
The first article in this issue was initially presented by Mark Chapman at an inaugural meeting in Oxford of a new group Affirming Liberalism. As Dr. Chapman makes clear their goal is not to form a distinct liberal party within the church, but to affirm the value of a liberal approach within all traditions. Hence one can be a Liberal Catholic or a Liberal Evangelical as well as being the kind of liberal who eschews all such labels.
Guest editorial by Linda Woodhead
from Modern Believing Vol 55:1
What do people in Britain really believe?
This special issue of Modern Believing is designed to answer that question by pulling together salient research and debate from the Westminster Faith Debates. I am grateful for the opportunity to do so, and I have tried to select findings and themes which may be of particular interest to readers of the journal.
