Lift High the Cross, by John Gunstone
Lift High the Cross. Anglo-Catholics and the Congress Movement, by John Gunstone. The Anglo-Catholic movement within the Church of England enjoyed a golden era beginning in the aftermath of the First World War and continuing to the middle of the 20th century. Its influence was widespread in all areas of local, national and international church life, and the renowned Anglo Catholic Congress, which held a number of provincial gatherings, became a pioneering evangelistic and teaching agency that was effective in a number of areas: inner city mission, contemporary biblical scholarship, social reform, women's suffrage, liturgical creativity, sponsorship of the arts, innovative church architecture, religious life and spiritual direction, initiatives in Christian unity and more. This illustrated history, co-published with the Society of Faith, charts the achievements of those remarkable years and provides a valuable record for all students of church history.
