This inspiring book offers readers a look inside the hearts and minds of the thinkers who have shaped Anglican spirituality over the past five centuries -- John Donne, George Herbert, John Wesley, Dorothy Sayers, Madeleine L'Engle, and many more.

Covering the most influential Anglican figures from the sixteenth century to the present, Glorious Companions chronicles their lives and work while capturing at the same time the deep personal faith that they have managed to communicate so powerfully to the rest of the world. These icons of the Christian faith include not only bishops and scholars but also housewives, poets, novelists, and teachers. Each biography included here contains a brief sketch of its subject's thought, a selection of short, representative quotations from their published writings, and a series of questions prompting reflection on their work's continuing value today.

Written in a lively style that brings readers into direct contact with some of the church's most admired witnesses, Glorious Companions will be valued both as a collection of insightful biographical information and as a lasting source of inspiration.
