The first scholarly biographical study on one of the most fascinating figures in 20th century Christianity, who has been neglected for many years by professional historians. Geoffrey Fisher worked to modernize the Church of England and to develop the worldwide Anglican Communion. His historic meeting with Pope John XXIII, his participation in national debates on the Suez Crisis and nuclear weapons, and his role in crowning Queen Elizabeth II made him a well-known figure in postwar Britain. A short and accessible book that will be essential to both the professional scholar and the interested amateur who wish to gain a greater understanding of the Church of England and the Anglican Communion during the turbulent post-war period.
