On Christian Theology

$54.95 - Online Price


In this comprehensive collection of his body of work, Rowan Williams tackles many of the most searching questions of theology and society at the end of the 20th century. His text bridges the gap between the academic, the spiritual and the political: it is the culmination of 20 years of teaching theology and of pastoral ministry, and reflects a continuing engagement with the patristic and medieval tradition of theology as well as with issues of contemporary theology and philosophy. Williams argues that theology moves constantly between the three registers of the celebratory, the communicative and the critical, and is held together by something not captured by any of these modes. He reflects on the fundamental connection between theology and self-awareness and self-critique, and discusses doctrinal issues - creation, incarnation, the Trinity - in this light. He addresses the nature of signs and sacraments and looks at the public and ethical embodiment of this theological vision. Overall, he presents a theological perspective acutely aware of the cultural and political crises of our time.
