Overview

Suscribing to Faith? The Anglican Parish Magazine 1859-1929 by Jane Platt

This book reveals the huge sales and propagandist potential of Anglican parish magazines, while demonstrating the Anglican Church's misunderstanding of the real issues at its heart, and its collective collapse of confidence as it contemplated social change.
