Rowan Williams: An Introduction
Full Product Description
This book is an essential companion for your assessment and understanding of the intellectual conflicts that have threatened to divide the Church of England in the closing decade of the 20th century and the opening decade of the 21st. Author Rupert Shortt assess the influence and effect of Rowan Williams as Archbishop of Canterbury, his apparently radical theological position, social incusivist and outspokenly activist leanings - juxtaposed with deeply conservative views, on holding together a line of Christian theology in trouble times.
Rowan Williams is one of the most enigmatic Archbishops of modern times combining a radical social conscience with a deep sense of orthodoxy and tradition in the Church. Said to be ‘Not an easy read’, the knowledge presented and discussed is essential to anyone interested in theology or Rowan Williams. This short introduction is a sympathetic, thoughtful and readable guide to the origins, character, career, theology and original ideas of Rowan Williams.
