Since its beginning, the Church has always been made up of groups with differing, sometimes conflicting, views about matters of doctrine or Christian practice. Things are certainly no different today. Differences can run deep and debate can be acrimonious, which is damaging for all, not least for the Gospel.

In this wise and gentle book, the celebrated writer William Countryman reminds Christians about the vast range of resources they have for discovering how solid and deep is the common ground on which they stand. Grace and humility are the only possible responses to the unimaginable gifts we have all received.

Calling on the Spirit is a heartening and uplifting exploration of the work of the Holy Spirit in the church today and is rooted in the classical traditions of Anglicanism.

Whatever your theological viewpoint, this is an enriching study for which readers will be deeply grateful.
