12 Eyeball-to-Eyeball Communion
By Thabo C. Makgoba
What is at stake is this: are we prepared to live in mutuality, across our differences?

14 The Hope of Things to Come
edited by Mark D. Chapman
Review by John C. Bauerschmidt
The Hope of Things to Come collects a number of essays that explore a common theme: as described by editor Mark D. Chapman, the relationship of past, present, and future within the context of the historically revealed Christian faith transmitted in a historical process within the institution of the Church. History, tradition, and the Church are approached from different angles in different essays, yet it is fair to say that each (whatever its starting point) moves intentionally to consider the future of Anglicanism.
