Anglicanism should be visible as irredeemably English. during this publication Kevin Ward questions that assumption. He explores the nature of the African, Asian, Oceanic, Caribbean and Latin American church buildings that are now a majority within the world-wide communion, and exhibits how they're decisively shaping what it potential to be Anglican. whereas emphasising the significance of colonialism and neo-colonialism for explaining the globalisation of Anglicanism, Ward doesn't concentration predominantly at the church buildings of england and N. the US; nor does he privilege the assumption of Anglicanism as an 'expansion of English Christianity'. At a time while Anglicanism faces the risk of dissolution Ward explores the traditionally deep roots of non-Western varieties of Anglicanism, and the significance of the variety and suppleness which has thus far enabled Anglicanism to strengthen cohesive but multiform identities round the world.
