Press Reviews

There is a dignity inherent in Rowan Williams’ writing that both challenges and ennobles those who read it . . . We are asked to consider in this book nothing less than the fundamental meaning of life itself.

- Lucy Winkett, Rector of St James’ Church, Piccadilly

Theology at its very best, and easily accessible too! Reading the book, I found myself drawn afresh to the vision of “perfect humanity” made manifest in Jesus Christ.

- Miroslav Volf, Professor of Theology, Yale University Divinity School

‘Rowan Williams is one of the great theologians of our time. He is also an inspiring teacher whose godly wisdom helps us understand profound truths.’

- Nicky Gumbel, Vicar of Holy Trinity Brompton and pioneer of the Alpha Course

Williams at the peak of his masterly powers as a Christian teacher and spiritual guide.

- Church Times

Profound and moving reflections.

- The Church of England newspaper

a ‘good book for busy people’, with ‘self-contained’ chapters

- The Reader

Writing in the appealing conversational idiom characteristic of his preaching style, Williams manages a subtle balance between assuming a doctrinal blank slate on the one hand and counteracting the effects of long familiarity on the other


an ideal Lent book

- Inspire Magazine

refreshingly simple but profound language

- Progressive Voices
