Church Wars : the Anglican Church at a Crossroads ( visu )
2 editions published between 2004 and 2012 in English and held by 90 libraries worldwide
"Following the consecration of gay cleric Gene Robinson, many wondered if anything could be done to reconcile the Anglican Church. The Communion has fractured, stated Archbishop of Sydney Peter Jensen. A crack has emerged and that crack will continue unless something radical is done. Like many traditionalists, he believes Robinson's ordination was a very bad moment for our church. Conservatives are concerned that the Archbishop of Canterbury did not firmly oppose gay ordination. They are threatening to pull their churches out of the Anglican community and have started to look elsewhere for religious guidance. But Gene Robinson remains unrepentant. God is doing a new thing here and I believe time will show that it is a godly thing."--Back of container
