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