Offering an ideal companion volume to Anglican Social Theology (CHP 2014), a range of leading contributors tell the story of Anglican social theology from its roots in the writings and work of F. D. Maurice and the Christian Socialists, including Charles Kingsley and John Ludlow.
Looking at second generation figures such as Charles Gore, Henry Scott Holland and the Christian Social Union as well as the central figure of William Temple, clarifying his role within the tradition, this text looks beyond Temple to the work of the Board for Social Responsibility, and to some of the theologians and church leaders who have continued its witness since then.
Referring to the wider ecumenical context in order to draw out the distinctive features of the tradition of Anglican Social Theology, this book provides an important and comprehensive account for all those interested in studying and teaching Anglican theology, social and political theology and Christian ethics.

Stephen Spencer is to be congratulated on assembling such an excellent group of speakers, who gave stimulating and engaging papers to a broad-ranging audience, and have promptly produced revised versions of their papers for publication. This is a worthy successor to Tawney's first lectures, and the long succession of volumes since 1922." -- William Jacob, Chair of the Henry Scott Holland Trustees
