A one-day conference will mark the release of Growth and Decline in the Anglican Communion: 1980 to the Present. The study is edited by the Rev. David Goodhew, director of ministerial practice at Cranmer Hall Durham.
Prepared by an international team of researchers across five continents, the study provides a global survey of Anglicanism and 12 detailed studies of Anglican churches in Australia, Congo, England, Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, Singapore, South Africa, South America, South India, South Korea, and the United States.
“This is a truly valuable book,” Philip Jenkins, distinguished professor of history at Baylor University, wrote in an endorsement. “In a collection of outstanding essays, the contributors seek to find firm ground for statements about growth and decline in the Anglican Communion, one of the world’s largest religious institutions.”
The conference will meet at Whitelands College of the University of Roehampton, London, on Feb. 24. Speakers will include David Voas, professor of social science at University College London; Emma Wild-Wood, lecturer in world Christianities at Cambridge University; the Rt. Rev. Graham Kings, mission theologian in the Anglican Communion; and Goodhew.
Tickets for the conference are £80, or £40 for students.
