Focusing on the three areas of liturgy, governance and inclusive ministry, it reflects on the theological journeys the church has undertaken to arrive at its present understanding. It aims to enable readers to engage theologically with these issues and offer a significant contribution to thinking in these areas for the future and the challenges it holds.

The Archbishop of Canterbury provides a foreword and the first female diocesan bishop and Michael's successor at Gloucester, an afterword.
