Abstract [en]

Åke Talltorp, Sacrament and Growth, A Study in the Sacramental Dimension of Expansion in the Life of the Local Church, as Reflected in the Theology of Roland Allen. Linköping Studies in Religion and Religious Education, No 7. Linköping University Electronic Press. ISSN 1404-4269 (on-line).

Roland Allen (1868–1947) emerged as an independent missionary strategist within the Anglican Mission to China from 1895 to 1904 and within the interdenominational World Dominion Press from 1924 to 1930. He combined a Catholic view of Anglicanism with a deliberate concern for local Christian initiatives and the spontaneous expansion of local Christina communitieswithin their own environment. Basic in the ecclesiology was his view of the Church as a network of local fellowships celebrating the Sacraments. Thus nurtured local Christian fellowships were the proper means of Evangelization. In order to implement this understanding of Mission he encouraged experiments which included a system of voluntary clergy.

In this study Allen’s brand of Sacramental Anglicanism is explored and his functional view of the proper agents of Mission assessed.
