Product description

Walter Frere was one of the great scholarly church leaders of the early twentieth century, yet he has remained something of an enigma. Although expert in many different areas of study, only a few specialists value his work today. This long-awaited book aims to make Frere and the great range of his ability, interests and legacy better known. Offering a mastery overview of his life and character and a reflection on his spirituality, it considers his outstanding role as a teacher, his innovative vision of the priesthood, the controversy he aroused as Bishop of Truro, his pioneering ecumenical work, his profound influence on the 1928 Prayer Book, and finally his enduring influence as a founder of the Community of the Resurrection. Contributors include Peter Allan CR, Bernard Barlow OSM, Philip Corbett, John Davies, Alexander Faludy, George Guiver CR, John Livesley, Alan Wilkinson and the editors.
