    The Theology of Rowan Williams

    Today's Price £24.99

    Product Description

    Rowan Williams's theology is a work of a fascinating yet controversial quality, serving up a blend of incredible depth and amazing diversity. Williams's work covers topics such as literary criticism, poetry, spirituality, theology, ethics and a broad supply of other genres.

    Myers' book is useful primarily because it narrates Williams' theological pilgrimage as just that: a pilgrimage, with a traceable, navigable route. He finds a coherence to Williams' bewildering output; there is a unifying theme that surfaces in virtually every essay, sermon, and poem: an ongoing exploration of God's difficulty and hiddeness."

    Rowan Williams argues that the Christian tradition began with an event of rupture, a traumatic disturbance of existing meanings and forms of social belonging. The resurrection of Jesus from the dead is 'an event on the frontier of any possible language', since it shatters our speech and our way of making sense of the world.

    - Sociality
    - Tragedy
    - Language
    - Boundaries
    - Tradition
    - Growth
    - Mission
    - Saints
    - Desire
    - Hope
    - Prayer
    - Fantasy
    - Renunciation

    In fact, one of the few common themes that run through Williams's work is that the choice of topic is not a result of the man's agenda. In Benjamin Myers's book, "The Theology of Rowan Williams," Myers presents the theology as possessing a certain theological construction that is a unique aspect to Williams's work.

    The work of Rowan Williams - one of the most fascinating theologians and most controversial church leaders - is virtually without parallel for its extraordinary diversity and complexity. This book argues that the complex body of Williams' work is held together by a theological construct of Christian language and of the Church's founding event.
