This is a lively and informative guide to the Church of England, from its Romano-British origins to the central church structures of the twenty-first century. It defines doctrine and how to address a Dean, covers Canon Law and explores the implications of Establishment; looks at mission and maintenance, music and ministry. From the Archbishop of Canterbury to the Thirty-Nine Articles and from Royal Peculiars to inter-faith relations, this invaluable resource brings together in a single volume the diverse threads that make up the Church of England.
