Praise for the Print Edition

There is a dignity inherent in Rowan Williams' writing that both challenges and enobles those who read it. This book addresses the core questions of Christian faith: what do Jesus' death and resurrection mean? With characteristic hope and a sense of adventure, Rowan Williams urges us to take seriously the interpretations of the past while remaining resolutely rooted in our own present, orientated towards the future. We are asked to consider in this book nothing less than the fundamental meaning of life itself. And it is thanks to the genius of his scholarship that the question brings joy in the answering.

—Lucy Winkett, Rector of St. James' Church, Piccadilly

Reading the book, I found myself drawn afresh to the vision of “perfect humanity” made manifest in Jesus Christ.

—Miroslav Volf, Professor of Systematic Theology, Yale Divinity School

This is a wonderful book; it is life-changing. No one can read it without coming closer to the crucified and risen Jesus...Rowan Williams is a very great teacher. With simplicity, subtlety, profound seriousness and humor too, he opens up to us the infinite depth of our Christian faith.

—Sister Wendy Beckett

About the Author

Born in 1950, Rowan Williams was educated in Swansea (Wales) and Cambridge. He studied for his theology doctorate in Oxford, after which he taught theology in a seminary near Leeds. From 1977 until 1986, he was engaged in academic and parish work in Cambridge, before returning to Oxford as Lady Margaret Professor of Divinity. In 1990, he became a fellow of the British Academy.

In 1992, Professor Williams became Bishop of Monmouth, and in 1999 he was elected as Archbishop of Wales. He became Archbishop of Canterbury in late 2002 with 10 years’ experience as a diocesan bishop and three as a primate in the Anglican Communion. As archbishop, his main responsibilities were pastoral—whether leading his own diocese of Canterbury and the Church of England, or guiding the Anglican Communion worldwide. At the end of 2012, after 10 years as archbishop, he stepped down and moved to a new role as Master of Magdalene College, Cambridge.

Professor Williams is acknowledged internationally as an outstanding theological writer and teacher as well as an accomplished poet and translator. His interests include music, fiction, and languages.
