Review quote

"This book is of immense importance. Since the biography by Bettany in 1928 there has been no serious assessment of Headlam ... 'the most controversial clergyman of the late Victorian age.' ... Behind the eccentricity and outrageous desirte to shock, there was a theological dynamic and focus that shaped the thought and the lives of many Christians less daring than Headlam himself. He pioneered a liberationist tradition within Catholic Anglicanism, a rebellious spirit within a conforming Church, and Orens's study shows that his story is highly relevant to our current crises. This work ought to be read as the first serious intellectual biography of one who can rightly be seen as the father of 'sacramental socialism.' ... Thorough, theologically astute, and entertaining." -- Rev. Kenneth Leech, *Church Times*show more
