Item Description...
Overview
Rowan Williams is widely recognized as a creative and powerful theologian, but his theological writings are frequently complex and difficult. This book provides a clear and simple guide to all the main themes of his theology, and shows how they are related to his reading of the Bible, his careful and wide-ranging engagement with the Christian tradition, and his grappling with contemporary culture. It shows how the Archbishop's ideas about peace or about popular culture, about sexuality or about evangelism, relate to his understanding of the nature of the life of God, and the challenging good news of Jesus Christ. This book is designed especially for those who have no formal training in theology or academic expertise, but are interested in finding out more about what Rowan Williams stands for.

Williamsian Theological Thinking At Its Best  Jan 15, 2005
Many people, within the Anglican Church or without, were excited by the election of Archbishop Rowan Williams, who is probably one of the few theologians in the English-speaking world that command respect across a wide spectrum for his "theological integrity" (a hallmark of good theological thinking, as he admirably articulated in his _On Christian Theology_). I am sure that Higton's timely book will be welcomed by many. For he achieves what an introductory book on Williams must do, i.e. not only explains Williams' thought but ILLUSTRATES Williams' thinking process and exemplifies its complexity and challenges, hence the aptly chosen title of _Difficult Gospel_. In its own right, Higton's book is already a minor contribution to theological thinking conducted in a genuine Williamsian manner. No greater tribute can be paid by a theologian to another theologian. Higton raises new questions that would arise from thinking through Williams' theological stance on many paramount issues confronting contemporary Christians. One of them that I find most stimulating is on the topic of education in general (not just religious education as such), an area surprisingly neglected by many academic theologians. In my opinion this book is by far the best introduction to Williams' theology and I would love to see it updated and expanded to incorporate the latest developments and controversies since Williams assumed his office. Laypeople who prefer a more easy-going introduction, with more biographical information and less theological sophistication, may try the little book written by Rupert Shortt instead. Since this book seems to be not available from the American this site, reader may wish to buy from the UK site direct.
