Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Rowan Williams is the Archbishop of Canterbury. In this collection of pastoral sermons and addresses, Williams shows how the faith of the creeds can still equip Christians for a vigorous and critical engagement with the world of today. In his often poetic, sometimes scholarly, and always thoughtful and engaging style, Williams reflects with wisdom and empathy on the gospel connections to issues of peace, war, justice, sexuality, wholeness, suffering, loneliness, vocation, and mission. Sermons from the church year and practical matters of Christian spirituality such as intercessory prayer and Bible study are also included; still others celebrate great Christian figures across the centuries, from the Anglo-Saxon saints to Michael Ramsey and T. S. Eliot. Also, published for the first time are Williams s addresses on Mission and Spirituality delivered at Yale in 1991, a sharp but sympathetic perspective on evangelism in the church today.

Synopsis:

This collection of sermons from the Bishop of Monmouth in Wales is Anglican preaching at its best, a serious theologian and sensitive pastor making connections among the Bible, Christian tradition, and contemporary experience. Williams shows how the faith of the creeds can equip Christians for a vigorous and critical engagement with the world. These reflections were delivered in parish churches as well as university congregations, and address questions of war, justice, sexuality, and suffering, as well as matters of personal vocation and spirituality. Williams includes striking reflections on great Christian figures across the centuries, from the Anglo-Saxon saints to John Wesley and T.S. Eliot, and gives a moving tribute to his mentor, Archbishop Michael Ramsey.
