The Church of England is one of the great institutions of the nation: closely enmeshed in its history, its politics and, above all, its religious beliefs. Could this precious resource be in decline? Falling numbers, particularly since the 1960s has made this become an urgent question. Accepting this, the Church has embarked upon extensive reforms to try to stem the loss of members.

Monica Furlong

MONICA FURLONG was a leading theologian, broadcaster and writer, who led the movement for the ordination of women as its moderator, and also as the leader of the St Hilda Community which develops new forms of worship which have become very widespread.

"'Clear, comprehensive and searching. Asks some hard questions but allows a variety of voices to be heard. A good and necessary book.' Evening Standard. 'A reflective and engaging book, in which Furlong's loyalty to the institution does not prevent her from pointing out painful truths about its current plight.' Sunday Telegraph. 'A devastating analysis of a church in theological, spiritual and organisational palsy - written by a supporter.' Guardian. 'A controversial and important book.' The Tablet."
