Paul writes – The Journal of Anglican Studies, Vol. 2, No. 2, 75-86 (2004) has, published within it, an essay, William Stringfellow’s Sacramental Vision by Wendy Dackson. I have tried e-mailing the author to ask her for a copy of her essay, but she no longer has an electronic copy. I don’t have access to a theological library. This is a bit cheeky, but I’d be really grateful to anyone who does have access to a theological library – one that has this particular journal in it – and would be willing to photocopy and post a copy of the essay to me, down here at the bottom of the world.
Here’s the abstract:
“William Stringfellow (1929-85) was an Episcopal layman, attorney and social activist. Although much has been written about him since his death, most of it is in the form of personal testimony. Examinations of various doctrinal areas of his theological writings are unusual. Therefore, this article examines Stringfellow’s idea of sacramental reality and grounds it in the worship of the Church and Christian engagement with the world. The concluding comments offer a justification for seeing this vision as one of enduring importance for faith and action in a post-Christian society.”
If anyone can please assist, could you please drop me an e-mail (address near the top of the right hand column) and I’ll let you have my postal address.
