Pre-talk refreshments in aid of Church funds
Pre-talk refreshments in aid of Church funds Is the Church of England over-managed and theologically under-led? As with many institutions today, a once confident Anglicanism appears to be anxious and vulnerable.
Martyn Percy assesses and evaluates the movements and forces now shaping the Church of England and challenges them culturally, critically, and theologically.
“a Christian culture… is ‘a society in which the natural end of man – virtue and well being in community – is acknowledged for all.’ T.S.Eliot”
Martyn Percy, Dean of Christ Church, Oxford, and member of the Faculty of Theology at the University of Oxford, also teaches in the Department of Sociology, and for the Saïd Business School. He serves as a Professor of Theological Education at King’s College London and a Professorial Research Fellow at Heythrop College. From 2004-2014 he was the Principal of Ripon College, Cuddesdon, at Oxford.
Recent books include Thirty-Nine New Articles: An Anglican Landscape of Faith and Anglicanism: Confidence, Commitment and Communion. He was recently described in the journal Theology as the British theologian who is closest to being a ‘missionary anthropologist’.
