Archbishop Rowan Williams is the most gifted Anglican priest of his generation. His views are consistent and orthodox and yet he has been consistently misunderstood - especially in relation to his views on contemporary society, public morality and the common good.

In this, the final published work of his Archepiscopate, Dr Williams has assembled a series of chapters on matters of immediate public concern and the relationship of Christianity to these issues. Among his topics are 'Has Secularism Failed?: Europe, Faith and Culture', 'Human Rights and Religious Faith', Changing the Myths We Live By', 'Housekeeping: The Economic Challenge', 'The Gifts Reserved for Age: Perceptions of the Elderly', and 'Analysing Atheism'.

About the Author:

Rowan Williams is Archbishop of Canterbury. He was formerly Lady Margaret Professor of Divinity at Oxford and Archbishop of Wales.

Review:

"The particular voice that Williams speaks with here is engaged, lively, concrete, authoritative (even if not magisterial), generous, humble, and witty." - John Perry, University of St. Andrews, Scotland

"The emphasis on religious pluralism as tolerance of differences combined with affirmation of one's non-negotiables opens up a positive area for dialogue; one's faith (or lack thereof) does not constitute an obstacle to mutual enlightenment and respect. Williams argues brilliantly for the relevance of both religion and politics, and the contribution of each to the other (133-4)." -Anthony J. Gittins, "Catholic Library World
"
