It is a privilege and an honor for the Anglican Theological Review to begin Volume 89 with the proceedings of the Third Afro-Anglicanism Conference, held July 20-27, 2005 in Toronto, Canada. (The ATR published the proceedings of the second conference in 77 # 4, 1985.) It is also an honor and a privilege to have the Rev. Canon Harold T. Lewis as guest editor once again. Dr. Lewis has been a leader of the Afro-Anglican movement since before the first conference in 1985, and is uniquely qualified to give an overview of this important movement, as he does in his Editors Introduction. We are also grateful to the many people who participated in creating this issue. Those who provided financial support are listed in the journal. We thank them for their generosity.
It is a pleasure to announce the winner of this years Charles Hefling Student Essay Competition: Kathryn L. Reinhard, an MDiv student at Berkeley Divinity School at Yale and an ordinand in the Diocese of New York. Her essay, Joy to the Father, Bliss to the Son: Unity and Motherhood Theology of Julian of Norwich, will be published in a later issue this year.
And it is with regret and also great gratitude that I announce the resignation of the Rev. Dr. William Carroll as Book Review Editor. During his tenure, Bill has expanded our corps of reviewers and brought many interesting books to our readers attention. We wish him well in his ministry as Rector of Good Shepherd Episcopal Church in Athens, Ohio. In the interim, Jackie Winter and I are interim co-editors for this part of the journal. A survey of our readers shows that the Book Review section is of great importance, and we are looking forward to announcing the appointment of a new editor soon.
