BISHOPS PAST , Present and Future (Gilead Books 2022) is the most comprehensive and up-to-date Anglican study of episcopacy produced in recent times. Drawing on primary sources from the New Testament to the present day, it provides detailed answers to three key questions: ‘Why should the Church of England have bishops?’ ‘What is the proper role of bishops?’ and ‘How should bishops respond to the challenges facing the Church of England and the Church in the West in general?’


Bishops – A Concise Study summarises the key points of the argument of this major study. It is designed to meet the needs of those who would like to know the answers to the three questions about bishops noted above, but who would balk at tackling the 800+ pages of the original book. This concise study is published in the hope that will help many in the Church of England, both ordained and lay to think in a more informed fashion about how bishops should respond to the challenges facing the Church of England at this critical point in its history as it considers how to move forward following the publication of the Living in Love and Faith material.
