‘The Problems of Anglicanism’ considers its origins, assumptions and authorities. Originally, Anglicanism relied on being the religion of the English, but it has since faced competition from other denominations. The fact that Anglicanism is more than the Church of England makes the issue of authority problematic — something further complicated by the provincial autonomy built into the English Reformation. Anglicanism's assumptions about the mission of the church are European in their focus, despite the fact that congregations are now overwhelmingly outside Europe. The question remains whether these assumptions can be made relevant in other contexts and in an increasingly diverse faith.
