Examines current issues facing the Anglican Communion through the prism of the history of the Southern African church and people. Through this combined narrative of the global and local church, the author offers a remarkable story combining history, race, class and culture in Africa. He traces the paradigm shift in Anglicanism as its vitality moves beyond the borders of England and America to the global South, with all the theological implications. Today, South African Anglicanism attempts a middle way through crucial issues like HIV/AIDS, poverty, and human sexuality. Ideal for those interested in “inculturation” – the intersection of church, culture, and ethnicity. The Rev. Dr. Harold T. Lewis is the rector of Calvary Episcopal Church in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and the author of Yet With a Steady Beat: The African-American Struggle for Recognition in the Episcopal Church. Lewis has spent a number of years working and teaching in South Africa. You may also like: Beyond Colonial Anglicanism: The Anglican Communion in the Twenty-First Century Ian T.
