|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.|
