Excerpt from The English Church in Other Lands, or the Spiritual Expansion of England The moral of the story will, I hope, unfold itself. It is that we, who are members of this Church or nation of England, are living in a time of unprece dented opportunities and of corresponding responsi bilities, which are laid upon us as citizens and as Christians; for we are concerned with events that are rapidly changing the face of the world, and threaten to Shift the centre of gravity of Christendom, so that at no distant time it may be found, neither at Constantinople nor at Rome, but at Canterbury.

In God's Empire, Hilary M. Carey charts Britain's nineteenth-century transformation from Protestant nation to free Christian empire through the history of the colonial missionary movement. This wide-ranging reassessment of the religious character of the second British empire provides a clear account of the promotional strategies of the major churches and church parties which worked to plant settler Christianity in British domains. Based on extensive use of original archival and rare published sources, the author explores major debates such as the relationship between religion and colonization, church-state relations, Irish Catholics in the empire, the impact of the Scottish Disruption on colonial Presbyterianism, competition between Evangelicals and other Anglicans in the colonies, and between British and American strands of Methodism in British North America.

In the Victorian and Edwardian era, history was one of the most prized forms of cultural and intellectual activity: it was, quite simply, the lens through which most of the educated population understood human society. Historians and the Church of England uncovers for the first time the extent to which this historical understanding was conditioned by religious ideas and institutions. Rejecting the traditional chronology of intellectual secularization, itcontends that the Church of England in particular remained an active force in the development of scholarship, leaving a deep impression on history just as it was becoming a modern discipline. It thereforechallenges readers to revise their understanding of the history of both historiography and religion in the nineteenth and early-twentieth centuries.

David Hilliard's God's Gentlemen, originally published in 1978, remains the only detached and detailed historical analysis of the work of the Melanesian Mission. Starting with its New Zealand beginnings and its Norfolk Island years (1867-1920), the work follows the Mission's shift of headquarters to the Solomon Islands and on until the beginning of the Second World War. The Mission, which grew out of the personal vision of the first Church of England Bishop of New Zealand, George Selwyn, formally defined its field of work as 'the Islands of Melanesia' although its activities were confined almost entirely to the island groups that now make up Vanuatu and the Solomon Islands. The Diocese of Melanesia was a fully constituent diocese of the Anglican Church of New Zealand from its formation in 1861 until the creation of the autonomous Church of the Province of Melanesia in 1975. Based on a wide range of sources, God's Gentleman is the inner history of the slow growth of an important and genuinely Melanesian church.
