An honest portrait of the past four decades, surveying the Church of England's history, structures and organization, identifying its weaknesses and failures, and apportioning blame. * Times Literary Supplement * A ferocious, impassioned wake-up call ... Brown [and] Woodhead have come together to summon the Church of England to stop its navel-gazing, cease its internecine party warfare, quit its flirtation with managerial "voodoo", rediscover its true purpose and reconnect with those outside its doors. * The Tablet * Devastating, witty and - for anyone who has ever tried to love the C of E - profoundly melancholy ... Well informed and stylish * Prospect *
