Praying for England: Priestly presence in contemporary culture

Praying for England: Priestly presence in contemporary culture
Praying for England reflects on the role of Christian priesthood in contemporary culture, and comes up with some surprising and timely insights about its efficacy and importance. There are ritual and representative functions of the priest, it argues, which remain spiritually and socially vital, even perhaps especially - in a society which ostensibly ignores the Church, or appears so pluralistic as to lack any religious cohesion.

This is a deceptively simple volume - theologically accessible but often deeply moving and profound. In it a new vision is sketched of how Christian priesthood can go forward today with humility, understated dignity, and spiritual power. It will be of special interest to English churchpeople in an established setting, but is written no less with an ecumenical and international readership in mind.
