Overview

Over the past few decades, seismic shifts have changed the contours of the Anglican Church in Australia. Numbers of rural dioceses are scarcely viable; major city centres are struggling under the pressures of urban growth and multiculturalism. Harsh conservative forces are threatening the historic inclusive comprehensiveness of Anglicanism, partly in reaction to the ordination of women. Fear and anxiety about the churches future is crippling the leaderships response. A New Exile? documents what has been happening, and poses the difficult question: what is the future for Anglicanism in Australia?

Dr Muriel Porter, a Melbourne journalist, author and historian, has been a member of the Anglican Church of Australia's General Synod and its Standing Committee for more than twenty-five years. She is a prominent advocate for the full equality of women and gay people in all aspects of the church's life, and has written extensively about the issues facing the contemporary church.
