Tokens of Trust is an excellent book. One that I would recommend to new belivers or anyone seeking an acessible refresher of what characteristics lie at the heart of the Christian faith. That is because Rowan Williams analyses Christianity in an applicable and relevant way; one that avoids religious jargon or overuse of (direct) Bible verses in favour of a discussion that lets you see how to actually live a trusting life (using the Creeds - or statements of belief - as guidelines). Here are some of the main points:
Page 8 "-to pick up two centrally important words in the Letter to the Ephesians - peace and praise. This and this alone is God's 'agenda'."
Page 35 "..the moment of creation is now. ...It means that within every circumstance, every object, every person, God's action is going on, a sort of white heat at the centre of everything. ... whatever you encounter is there because God chose that it should be there."
Page 37 "Faith doesn't try and give you an alternative theory about the mechanics of the world; it invites you to take a step further, beyond the nuts and bolts, even beyond the Big Bang, to imagine an activity so unrestricted, so supremely itself, that it depends on nothing and is constantly pouring itself out so that the reality we know depends on it."
Page 38 "Christianity says that the sum total of all that there is is held together by God's action and will, and that God is not 'exhausted by that - if you took the universe away, there would still be a God no less great that before."
Page 44 "I have been trying to suggest the picture of a God whose almighty power is more of a steady swell of loving presence, always there at work in the centre of everything that is, opening the door to a future even when we can see no hope."
