Warfare and Waves
Calvinists and Charismatics in the Church of England
Imprint: Pickwick Publications
"This is an invaluable account of how two influential but little-studied movements have shaped the Church of England in recent times. It brings to bear great psychological and sociological insight, as well as humor and good sense."
--Professor Linda Woodhead, Department of Politics, Philosophy and Religion, Lancaster University
"This is a clear and composed analysis of contemporary evangelicalism, and Herriot's sage and insightful observations make for compelling reading. This book should be read and studied by all those in the field of ecclesiology and the study of contemporary Christianity. The clarity and cogency of Herriot's work gives us an unrivaled guide to one of the most fascinating fields in the study of the contemporary church."
--Martyn Percy, Dean, Christ Church College, Oxford University
"Herriot explores the tension between Calvinists and Charismatics in the broader context of the clash between institutions and movements in the Church of England. This book is a remarkable social psychological study, sensitive to the history and future of England's Church, which must confront the fact of globalization as it addresses the dual demands of sexual and economic justice from both internal and external pressures. This is a marvelous read and a remarkably wise book."
--Ralph W. Hood Jr., former editor, Journal for the Scientific Study of Religion, former president, Division of Psychology of Religion, American Psychological Association
