The Church of England
Herbert Hensley Henson (1863-1947) held the position of Bishop of Durham between 1920 and 1939. He was also well known for his forthright opinions on a variety of issues, including the Dreyfus affair. In this volume, which was originally published in 1939 as part of the English Institutions series, Henson provides a comprehensive guide to the Church of England. The first chapter gives a historical introduction, then subsequent chapters deal with the various institutions which make up the Church and its relationship with other branches of Christianity. A detailed index and numerous illustrative figures are also included. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in the Anglican tradition and ecclesiastical history.
