Product description

From 1987 to 1994 the Church of England ordained women to the diaconate, but refused to open to them the order of priesthood. For some women this was a period of hope and promise of further change.

In this important study all women serving as deacon in the Church of England in 1994 were invited to reflect on their experiences of the diaconate and their hopes for the priesthood. All told, 1,139 Church of England women accepted this invitation. "The Long Diaconate" invites the rest of the church to listen.
