What's New This Week

ALL THE NEW URLS we receive each week are here. We list two (sometimes three) weeks’ worth, cycling the old ones off each week. As they disappear from this page, you'll find the links moved to their natural home categories in our resource pages.

If you can't find something that was once here, you can look in our archives or try the AO search engine. It searches our entire site and also many important official Anglican sites worldwide.

Anglicanism and the Western Christian Tradition: continuity, change and the search for communion. Edited by Stephen Platten, now Bishop of Wakefield, published by Canterbury Press, and reviewed in The Tablet by David Edwards. This compilation of images and papers is taken from the 2002 conference and exhibition about the history and present character of the Church of England and the wider Anglican Communion. Rather than an analysis of the weekly news headlines on the problems of Christianity and the Anglican communion in particular, it is rather a story of pre-1850 Anglican life.
