In another fine research essay, Savitri Hensman, who has also contributed several chapters to Fear or Freedom?, gives a much broader picture of the current Anglican struggles over sexuality, authority and scripture. Her article Tradition, Change and the New Anglicanism looks at how the tradition claimed exclusively by hard-liners as their own has actually developed in the past, and she locates it in a wider concern for authentic interpretation, love of neighbour, the history of authoritarianism and the search for a universal code of human rights - something endorsed by the Lambeth Conference back in 1948.
