The Origins of Anglican Moral Theology
Brill, 2018, x + 427 pp., pbk
This is an outstanding piece of work. If the present reviewer had such a resource when beginning to teach moral theology, not only would it have avoided much grief, but it would also have nourished a properly integrated approach to the discipline. Peter Sedgwick’s account, however, is not for the faint-hearted. It is both comprehensive in its scope and rigorous in its analysis. It is a scholarly piece of work, unique in its genre. It makes clear that Anglican moral theology stands within a far wider and longer tradition and cannot be understood adequately except from within that context.
