Holy Living

Full Product Description

  • Looking to understand how faith fits in today?
  • Rowan Williams shows how holiness is as essential to faith as air is to lungs
  • Holy Living calls on believers to adopt holiness as a state of being
Apart from being a scholar and theologian, Rowan Williams has also demonstrated a rare gift for speaking and writing plainly and clearly about essentials of the Christian faith. In the chapters of this book he writes with profound perception about the life of holiness to which we are called.

The range of Williams' frame of reference is astonishing - he brings poets and theologians to his aid, he writes about the Rule of St Benedict, the Bible, Icons, contemplation, St Teresa of Avila and even R. D. Laing.

He concludes with two chapters on the injunction 'Know Thyself' in a Christian context. Throughout, Williams points out that holiness is a state of being - it is he writes 'completely undemonstrative and lacking any system of expertise. It can never be dissected and analysed.'

Holy Living by Rowan Williams was published by Bloomsbury Publishing PLC in September 2017 and is our 8745th best seller. The ISBN for Holy Living is 9781472946089.
