Wearing a backpack and embracing the role of the student he still is, Jesse Alexander Zink has made use of volunteer assignments, seminary- sponsored visits, and personal invitations to search locally and concretely for answers to a question others have addressed juridically and theologically: “What unites the Anglican Communion?” In contrast to the hope, often heard today, that unity can be found “in mission,” this theologian argues that unity of all the baptized can be ap- proached only by the “method” of the Incarnation. With Charles Gore, the early twentieth-century English bishop, Zink understands that Incarnation give us “the power to think one’s self into another’s thoughts, to look through another’s eyes, to feel with another’s feeling, to merge one’s self in another’s interest—this is the higher power, the power of love, and we owe it to the Incarnation” (p. 188).
