The prestigious Prideaux Lectures were given in 1990 by Adrian Hastings, published here in volume form. With a distinctive and fresh approach, he surveys the vast range of interactions between the Christian church and the English state. The central theme Hastings develops is the tension between the intrinsic dualism within the Christian approach to church and state and the pressure towards monism inherent in the Reformation establishment. Church and State provides a frame of reference, at once historical and theological, for a subject that is too frequently discussed merely descriptively or moralistically.
Church Times
“To be told of this book...would be enough to whet the appetite. ...Actually meeting the book goes beyond whetting appetites; it is somewhere near inflaming them. ...There are some pungent axe-edged quotes laid to the root of the tree.” –Church Times
