Haunted by Christ
Richard Harries considers the work of twenty of these writers, painting vivid pictures of their lives and times, and providing us with numerous critically sympathetic insights into the spiritual dimension of their writings.
Anyone who has read anything by Richard Harries before will know that he reads widely, deeply and carefully. In this enormously engaging book, he shares with us his reading of many of the great writers of modernity, inviting us to attend with him to their wrestling with the hardest questions of human existence before God – and sometimes before the apparent absence of God. These are enriching and provoking reflections, testimony to the way the Christian gospel continues to be a vehicle for the most serious thinking and imagining in our culture.
