The signal outdoors the conservative, white church within the small southern U.S. city declares that the church is a part of the Episcopal Church--of Rwanda. In Anglican Communion in Crisis, Miranda Hassett tells the interesting tale of ways a brand new alliance among conservative American Episcopalians and African Anglicans is remodeling conflicts among American Episcopalians--especially over homosexuality--into international conflicts in the Anglican church.
within the mid-1990s, conservative American Episcopalians and Anglican leaders from Africa and different components of the Southern Hemisphere started to forge ties towards the yankee Episcopal Church's perceived liberalism and starting to be toleration of homosexuality. This led to dozens of yankee Episcopal church buildings filing to the authority of African bishops.
in response to vast examine, interviews with key individuals and observers, and months Hassett spent in a southern U.S. parish of the Episcopal Church of Rwanda and in Anglican groups in Uganda, Anglican Communion in Crisis is the 1st anthropological exam of the coalition among American Episcopalians and African Anglicans. The e-book demanding situations universal views--that the connection among the american citizens and Africans is only one among comfort or perhaps that the americans got the help of the Africans. in its place, Hassett argues that their partnership is a planned and dedicated move that has tapped the facility and language of globalization with a purpose to circulate either the yankee Episcopal Church and the global Anglican Communion to the right.
