Item Description...
A major ?gure in twentieth-century Christianity, Geoffrey Fisher worked to modernise the Church of England and to develop the worldwide Anglican Communion. His historic meeting with Pope John XXIII, his participation in national debates on the Suez Crisis and nuclear weapons, and his role in crowning Queen Elizabeth II brought him prominence in postwar Britain. His neglect by professional historians is partly remedied by this new biography. "David Hein here offers an elegant appraisal of his subject, placing Fisher in a succession of shifting landscapes and measuring his role with an acute eye. A superb portrait, it is the work of a historian of genuine distinction." - Andrew Chandler, Director, George Bell Institute at the University of Chichester "Whilst eminently scholarly and appropriately demanding for the reader, this biography holds one's attention - a signi?cant achievement, and much to be commended " - Ann Loades, Professor of Divinity Emerita, Durham University, UK "David Hein's treatment of Archbishop Fisher's career throws a great deal of light on the Church of England, Britain in the mid-twentieth century, and the place of religion in Europe and in the developing world following World War II. His assessment of Fisher as leader of the international Anglican Communion is particularly illuminating." - W. Brown Patterson Emeritus Dean and Professor of History, University of the South "A short, accessible book helpful to both the professional scholar and interested amateur who wish to gain a greater understanding of the Church of England and the Anglican Communion more widely during the turbulent post-war period." - Wendy Dackson Ripon College, Cuddesdon David Hein is Professor of Religion and Philosophy at Hood College and co-author of The Episcopalians.
