"The Anglican Church of Australia is the nation's second largest religious organisation and a leading member of a global spiritual community. It is also among the least well understood. With continuing disputes about its origins and identity, the Church has recently been distracted from its primary calling of mission and ministry by disagreements over what constitutes authentic Anglicanism and arguments about how it ought to deal with departures from historic customs and traditional beliefs." "In Anglicans in Australia, bishop and theological commentator Tom Frame identifies the faultlines and assesses the tensions that exist within the contemporary Anglican Church. He describes continuing debates over doctrine and their effect on the Australian Church's dealings with the global Anglican Communion, and outlines problems, prospects and possibilities over the next twenty-five years."--BOOK JACKET.
-Publisher

In "Anglicans in Australia," bishop and theological commentator Tom Frame identifies the fault lines and tensions that exist within the contemporary Anglican Church, describes continuing debates over doctrine and their effect on the Australian Church's relationship with the global Anglican Communion, and outlines problems, prospects and possibilities over the next twenty-five years. This thoroughly researched and carefully constructed book, written by a perceptive and judicious insider, will help Anglicans understand their own complex religious institution and illuminate it for outsiders as well.
