About the Author:

The Rt Rev Dr Barry Morgan has been the Archbishop of Wales since 2003. He was born in Neath in 1947 and educated at University College, London and Selwyn College, Cambridge. He trained for ordained ministry at Westcott House, Cambridge. In 1986, he was awarded a Ph.D. from the University of Wales. Previous appointments include Warden of Church Hostel Bangor; Chaplain and Lecturer in Theology, at the University of Wales Bangor; Director of Ordinands and In-service training advisor in the diocese of Bangor; and Rector of Wrexham.

Review:

As said by Rowan Williams the Archbishop of Canterbury: 'This is a deeply helpfull and creative guide, to be welcomed not only by the general reader but by the Christian student for whom R.S.Thomas can be a disturbing and unsettling voice.' As said by Professor M.Wynn Thomas: 'This is a thoughtful, lucid, attractively written meditation ...Accessible in its style of approach to its subject, it is likely to prove very attractive to that substantial body of dedicated readers of Thomas's devotional poetry who are drawn to it primarily for the religious faith it artictulates in compellingly contemporary terms.'
