The divisions between Rome and Canterbury have existed for 500 years, since the Reformation begun by Martin Luther. According to author Reath, the U.S. representative on the governing board of the Anglican Center in Rome, the reality of this division was unintended, was never completely accepted, and still remains as a blemish or unhealed wound of Christianity. Here, she traces the history of the breach between Catholicism and the Anglican/Episcopal churches. Reath, who has been personally involved in ecumenical dialogs for many years, clearly articulates the obstacles preventing unity in the two religious bodies. But even more important, she promotes a vision of possible reconciliation in the near future, offering a positive and hopeful consideration of shared history, theology, and belief. This sensitively and respectfully written book is complete with seven appendixes. Recommended for all collections.
