• Recovery of forgotten figures in Anglican spirituality with import for today
• Written by an eminent scholar of the Anglican Communion

Distinguished Anglican theologian Jane Shaw presents four of the early 20thcentury Anglican innovators in spirituality and assesses how they might help us develop a renewed Anglican spirituality for our own "spiritual but not religious" age. These four Anglicans—Percy Deamer, Evelyn Underhill, Somerset Ward, and Rose Macaulay—are people who revived spirituality at a time, like our own, when people were questioning institutional religion.

Audience: Seekers, church leaders, clergy, those interested in spiritual renewal
