In response to the very real threat of schism in the Anglican Communion, the Lambeth Commission on Communion 2004 published the "Windsor Report" which proposed the worldwide adoption of a Covenant - an agreement to be entered into by all Anglican churches to regulate their relationships and reduce the likelihood of conflict in the future. This book offers introductory guidance to the idea of a Covenant, its theological context and legal implications, the arguments for and against it.
NORMAN DOE is Professor of Law at the University of Wales, Cardiff and a specialist in canon law. Since 2002 he has been a Consultant to the Anglican Communion Legal Advisers Network and was a member of the Lambeth Commission Steering Party which drafted the Windsor Report and the Covenant.
