’The Future of Anglicanism’ considers the challenge of how Anglicanism can hold together when faced with the pressures of autonomy and a lack of international consensus. The principles of modern Anglicanism have been affirmed throughout the twentieth century. Provincial autonomy in particular has been bolstered by ‘comprehensiveness’ which allows latitude of interpretation. The Anglican Consultative Council and Primates' Meeting have helped improve inter-provincial communication. Controversial issues like the ordination of women have been treated with respect for provincial autonomy, but the issue of homosexuality, combined with a post-colonial fight-back, has proved more divisive. The Communion will need to foster discussion and understanding if it is to stay together in future.
