From the cover: “With the publication of The Rock and the River, Martin Thornton’s reputation as a — many knowledgeable people would say the — leading contemporary Anglican thinker writing from the catholic tradition is confirmed and renewed. His earlier books (Christian Proficiency, English Spirituality etc. ), have been hailed in the press as an astonishing and refreshing antidote to almost all traditional apologetic. Time and Tide wrote that they are expressed in a form which makes them real and important not just to the church but to most laymen — and not only the pious ones. After a pause of several years — rentier pour mieux sauter- he has added this work to the new theology debate, when the beat and clamour have died down somewhat.
