Rowan Williams on critical contemporary issues in his final book as Archbishop of Canterbury.

About the Author

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


In this often brilliant, always stimulating, and unfailingly even-handed book, the former Archbishop of Canterbury weaves his erudition and Christian faith into a thread that guides him through the labyrinth where contemporary politics, secularism, ignorance, intolerance, good will, and virtue are to be found ... Williams argues brilliantly for the relevance of both religion and politics, and the contribution of each to the other. -- Anthony J. Gittins * Catholic Library World *
