“The authors, as one might expect from an episcopal church, include three present or former archbishops, 13 bishops, 20 or so priests and 40-odd academics, many of them professors (with some overlap between the last two groups), so there is plenty of authoritative scholarship and expertise here.” (Reference Reviews, 1 October 2014) “The Wiley-Blackwell Companion to the Anglican Communion (WBCAC) is an unprecedented work on global Anglicanism. It offers a thorough account of the history, structures, members and major themes in Anglican thought, which is as comprehensive as it is comprehensible. As a guide to the Anglican Communion, it leaves no notable stone unturned.” (Churchman, 1 August 2014) “This is a valuable contribution to understanding the Anglican Communion. Summing Up: Recommended. Lower-division undergraduates through professionals/practitioners; general readers.” (Choice, 1 December 2013)

This uniquely comprehensive reference work provides a global account of the history, expansion, diversity, and contemporary issues facing the Anglican Communion, the worldwide body that includes all followers of the Anglican faith. It brings together a distinguished and international team of contributors, including some of the world’s leading Anglican commentators, to offer readers unrivalled coverage of the church’s historical development and the religious and ethical questions affecting it today. The volume incorporates every aspect of this vibrant and often complex religious community – home to the third-largest Christian denomination – from the analysis of its instruments of Unity, to its central role in interfaith communication. It spans the Anglican Communion’s long history through to 21st century debates within the church on such issues as sexual-orientation of clergy, and the pastoral role of women. Included is a full directory of the Church’s 44 provinces, with a brief history of each, alongside dedicated bibliographies for each chapter. The result is an insightful and wide-ranging treatment of this dynamic global faith.
“This wide-ranging and wonderfully comprehensive companion is really a well-informed guide. Its many essays, together with reports from the provinces which constitute the Communion, provide the background and present the challenges that face the Communion, and its member churches, as it looks to the future. The vast amount of information contained here is invaluable to anyone interested in the evolution of what is known as Anglicanism.”—Frank T. Griswold, XXV Presiding Bishop, The Episcopal Church “The Wiley-Blackwell Companion to the Anglican Communion marks an important, and much-needed, effort to assemble the best of modern Anglican scholarship in a cooperative, global enterprise, across theological as well as geographic and economic dividing lines to chart something of the vicissitudes of Anglican diversity-in-unity. Here, remarkably, some of the best minds of modern Anglicanism, and a host of recognized leaders, wrestle with the meaning of Anglican identity and history in a single, comprehensive sweep. A rare feat of both scholarship and ecclesial service by Anglicans for the good of the whole--and a first fruit, we may hope, of many similar, cooperative efforts.”—Christopher Wells, Executive Director and Editor of The Living Church Foundation
