Kerry O'Halloran brings his legal scholarship of charity and human rights law to forensically examine their challenges to the established Church of England. Such legal reform combined with cultural changes to long-established mores challenging the very fabric of the Anglican Communion make this book a timely contribution to the popular and academic debate about the place of religion in a pluralist society.

Kerry O’Halloran’s study provides an interesting insight into one of the world’s predominant religions and its internal conflicts as the ‘established’ Church of England grapples with socially-challenging issues such as defining family, gay rights, and same-sex marriage. The primary focus of the text is that of charity law and its interface with rapidly evolving human rights in the 21st century at a time when the Church of England is being confronted by the concept of ‘religion’ being redefined by incorporating human rights with which the Church must comply. O’Halloran’s study, which focuses on the rights of humans as supported by charity law as well as human rights legislation and conventions, is a thought-provoking contribution to the debate about the current and future role of a troubled Church of England as a part of society, rather than as an isolationist, in the 21st century.
