    Book details

Current public discussion of religion is characterized by conflict and acerbity. This is due in part to the deeply antagonistic structures of religious debates: science vs religion, theism vs atheism, creationism vs evolution, and so on. This book looks to Blake's and Wordsworth's poetry for a different type of interpretive engagement with religion: one that can include rather than exclude, and creatively interrelateGÇörather than destructively set at oddsGÇödifferent approaches to religion. The discussion focuses on a key religious vision of each poet, and finds its way into the question of religion via the reception history of academic and popular responses to these two visions: the autobiographical, biographical, historical, mystical, psychedelic, and theological. These different interpretations reflect different facets of the visions in question, and mirror their synthesizing inclusivity. As the two poets negotiate different personal and corporate experiences of religion, their poetry achieves this inclusive form of engagement not by seeking an unworldly perspective that has transcended such debates, but by making religious vision an open meeting ground for conflicting discourses.

'In this insightful and refreshing review of Episcopal leadership and oversight, Malcolm Grundy does not allow himself to be distracted by the highly visible and divisive debates concerning the gender, sexual orientation and lifestyle of bishops.' --Rural Theology Journal

Review Text

  • By Portal on 14 May 2013

    This book has become the key text for those appointed to episcopal office in the U.K., in the baltic and Scandinavian countries and in the Episcopal Church in the USA. It has also brought the concept of 'oversight' into usage as an important theological term. The relevance of a ministry where distributed organizations need care and leadership is also of value to clergy with several congregations.

  • By Oyin on 22 June 2011

    Grundy's book 'Leadership and Oversight,' is a good reflection on the vacuum of leadership in relation to the practice of episocpacy.
