This is an introduction to the thought of one of the most fascinating theologians and at the same time most controversial church leaders of our time. In contemporary theology, the work of Rowan Williams is virtually without parallel for its extraordinary diversity and complexity. His writings span the genres of poetry, history, literary criticism, spirituality, theology, ethics, and philosophy - yet this diverse body of work is apparently not unified by any overarching system or agenda. Indeed, one of the hallmarks of Williams' thought is a vigorous refusal of completeness and systematic closure. Nevertheless, this book will argue that the complex body of Williams' work is held together by a specific theological construal both of Christian language and of the church's founding event.
-Publisher


Rowan Williams is a complex, creative and versatilethinker. Not only a theologian and church leader, he is also a poet, atranslator, a literary critic, a social theorist and historian. His imaginativevision brings together the streams of modern literature, patristic theology,Russian orthodoxy, German philosophy and Welsh piety. In this lucid and elegantguide, Benjamin Myers explores Williams' thought from the 1960s to the present.He shows that Williams has developed an immensely resourceful - anddistinctively Christian - response to some of the major social, moral andintellectual challenges of our time.
