Contents: 'Two Trains Running' investigates the relation between the reception of ARCIC's Final Report and the debates on the ordination of women. It is divided into three parts. The first part deals with the understanding of authority in the Church by ARCIC. The second part is dedicated to the history and synthesis of the debate on the ordination of women in the Anglican Communion, especially the Church of England. The third part discusses the developments of this issue in the Catholic Church. The book concludes with an exploration of the possible ecumenical future for Anglicans and Catholics.
