Moderate rubbing to paperback binding, with light creasing. Stamped numbers to front free endpaper and previous owner's name and scribbling to title page, otherwise contents clean and unmarked. Binding is tight and sound. From rear cover: "Robert Hale uses Roman Catholicism and Anglicanism as examples in setting up a model for the search for mutual understanding. He focuses his attention on the biblical, patristic and mmedieval idea of 'sister churches' to illuminate the relationship that can exist between bodies that have no official unity." A nice signed copy of the work of the Roman Catholic Camaldolese monk, the Co-Prior of Incarnation Priory in Berkeley with monks from both Anglican and Roman Catholic traditions. Very good. Item #957
