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.

Rowan Williams: An Introduction by Rupert Shortt was published by Darton Longman & Todd in June 2003 and is our 51575th best seller. The ISBN for Rowan Williams: An Introduction is 9780232524901.

Publisher's Description

A sympathetic, thoughtful but readable guide to the career and ideas of Rowan Williams and the first study of its kind to tackle the weighty theology of the new Archbishop of Canterbury. Many people remain puzzled by how Rowan Williams' social radicalism can coexist with a reputation for orthodoxy in doctrine.

Rowan Williams: An Introduction is the first thorough account of the Archbishop's career and evolution as a thinker. A long biographical chapter is followed by three further sections on key aspects of Williams' theology, spirituality and politics. The result is a sympathetic but not uncritical profile of a leader with unmatched talents for enhancing dialogue between Christianity and secular culture.
