There is a rich vein of writing within Anglican tradition that has helped to form the theology and spirituality of the contemporary church. For many readers, much of this material remains unfamiliar and is often difficult to access. Love's Redeeming Work draws together the works of majorwriters from the sixteenth century to the present day who have contributed to this development.Each selected writer is introduced with a brief biography, which gives background information about the author, and highlights the relationships that existed with others from the same period. This will enable the reader to set the writings in their proper context, enhancing understanding of thematerial.The selections then follow. In some instances these may be familiar, but other examples will introduce fresh ideas for every reader. Each writer's selection is concluded with a list of source texts, which can encourage readers to explore in more depth those areas which intrigue and excite them.Love's Redeeming Work traces a path that has enabled Anglicanism in particular, and the wider church as well, to develop an ever-deepening awareness of the need for a spiritual depth in the Christian life informed by a better knowledge of tradition.

Editorial Reviews

`This is a book which is going to prove itself indispensable: in the first place to Anglicans, to help them discover and undertsnad something of the tradition they inherit, and then to Christians of other traditions, not only in the English-speaking world but also in the rest of Europe, whereLutherans, Catholics and Orthodox are often intrigued to inquire into this thing called Anglicanism.'A.
