Two Christian Leaders Different in Theology, United in Love for Their Lord


Portman, William, Anglican Journal


TWO CHRISTIAN leaders--one from the 19th century, the other from the 20th--vastly different in theology but united in love for their Lord--are featured in these books. William Booth made his mark in the 19th century a+89s founder and autocratic "General" of the worldwide Salvation Army. Michael Ramsey was an eminent theologian and, as 100th Archbishop of Canterbury, the "first among equals" leader of the worldwide Anglican Communion.

Glory Descending serves both as an introduction to Ramsey's life and career and an anthology of his key writings, interspersed with reflections and analysis of his continuing influence as a prophetic call to faith in our own times.

That prophetic voice was heard in his enthronement sermon in Canterbury Cathedral when he demanded greater freedom for the Church of England. At the world Anglican Congress in Toronto in 1963, his sermon "The Church that lives to itself will die by itself," based on Romans 14:7, revolutionized mission throughout the Anglican world.

Evangelical by origin, catholic by formation, liberal by instinct, and of great spiritual depth, Ramsey inspired two generations of Christians. Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams contributes four essays probing themes in Ramsey's thought. Retired Archbishop of York John Habgood and Bishop Geoffrey Rowell of Gibraltar offer lectures prepared for the centennial of Ramsey's birth, while Rev. Douglas Dales presents a short biography and exploration of his spiritual theology.

The Life and Ministry of William Booth: William Booth's Salvation Army is still held in high regard more, perhaps, for its social service ministries than for its place as a church among the churches.
