These comments refer to the original Hodder & Stoughton, September 2000 edition
A thought-provoking and very readable book, this provides a brief account of the history of the dear old Church of England (145 pages) followed by a longer section (238 pages) analysing its current state according to Monica Furlong.
You may or may not agree with her analysis and strong opinions, but she will certainly make you think about our church and where we might be heading in the twenty-first century.
Although this is quite a long book, individual chapters are relatively short and can be read one at a time. Well worth reading and reflecting on!
