Instead, Hassett argues that their partnership is a deliberate and committed movement that has tapped the power and language of globalization in an effort to move both the American Episcopal Church and the worldwide Anglican Communion to the right. Perspectives and actions that do not make sense in terms of a dominant discourse may be misinterpreted or ignored altogether. Based on wide research, interviews with key participants and observers, and months Hassett spent in a southern U.

Anglican Communion In Crisis

anglican communion in crisis hassett mir anda k

This book is an excellent analysis of the current division within Anglicanism, the significance of the partnership between conservative Episcopalians and African Anglicans, and the consequences for the Anglican Communion. In arguing that the worldwide Communion should be considered and consulted in Episcopal Church policies, Episcopal dissidents are challenging the historical modus operandi of the Anglican Communion. The vision and language of global shift, of rising Southern Christendom and worldwide realignment, so pervades perceptions of current events in the Episcopal Church and the Anglican Communion that it is difficult to step back and recall that this interpretation is not inherent in the events themselves. The author also relies on tedious academic language in the postmodern vein which makes the narrative drag at times. In mid-2000 the leadership of St.

Based on wide research, interviews with key participants and observers, and months Hassett spent in a southern U. It is a serious work of anthropology that deserves wide readership for its discussion of cultural and political dynamics as much as the continuing 'reasoning' within the Anglican Communion.

I first undertook this research because I was intrigued, as both an anthropologist and an Episcopalian, by developing alliances between some unlikely allies: American social conservatives, commonly stereo-typed as having little interest in including the marginalized, and Southern church leaders, whose demands for greater influence threaten the Northern dominated status quo. Fascinating study even if you are not interested in Anglicanism per se. Their collaborative activism aims to establish conservative sexual morality within the Episcopal Church and to increase the influence of Southern Anglicans in the Anglican Communion, a goal attractive both to formerly marginalized Southern leaders and to American conservatives, who hope Southern Anglicans will exert a conservative moral influence on the global church.

Kirkpatrick explores the variety of contentious issues, rather than focusing just on the one that gets the most media attention: homosexuality.
