Rowan Williams is a complex, creative, and versatile thinker. Not only a theologian and church leader, he is also a poet, a translator, a literary critic, a social theorist, and historian. His imaginative vision brings together the streams of modern literature, patristic theology, Russian orthodoxy, German philosophy, and Welsh piety. In this lucid and elegant guide, Benjamin Myers explores Williams’ thought from the 1960s to the present. He shows that Williams has developed an immensely resourceful—and distinctively Christian—response to some of the major social, moral, and intellectual challenges of our time.
The Logos version of Christ the Stranger integrates this important work into your Logos library. Scripture references link to your preferred translation. Pull up other prominent Anglican theologians and compare their work with Williams’ side by side. Use it as a reference for sermon prep or an aid in your own devotional study.
