Unlike some general histories which concentrate on church leaders, it focuses upon the lives of ordinary church-goers and of the local clergy who ministered to them. The author traces changes in church life, charting the emergence and distinctive characteristics of different denominations. ISBN13:9780521645560. Yazar hakkında (2003). Doreen Rosman taught in the School of History at the University of Kent, 1974-2001. Her publications include Evangelicals and Culture (1984, reprinted 1992) and From Catholic to Protestant: Religion and the People in Tudor England (1996).

The Evolution of the English Churches, 1500-2000. all while keeping it brief. I think any readers will find that this book carries out its mission well and gives an erudite, intriguing history of the Episcopal Church. If only an author could briefly tell us where it is going in the future.

Even the history of the church, that most singular of commitments, has become the history of the churches, and Doreen Rosman's ambitious survey focuses moreover on "the lives of ordinary churchgoers and of the local clergy who ministered to them. The book reaches a crescendo with John Robinson in the 1960s and David Jenkins in the 1980s, both depicted as giving expression less to academic theology than to popular religiosity, but it continues thereafter with serious attention to a bewildering array of developments since the 1980s: the charismatic movement, "new age" religions, immigrants' religions, the house church movement.

Nevertheless this is a book with some powerful merits. Rosman's survey of religion on the eve of the Reformation is comprehensive without losing a sense of the diversity of religious practice in England. The nature of medieval faith is explored without reducing it to simplistic statements. The transition from Catholic to Protestant is ably handled and the diversity of responses to the switchbacks of Edward VI's and Mary's reigns are explained well.
