Comprehensive Expositions of all aspects of Christianity In Today's World,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Faith in the Public Square (Hardcover)
Rowan Williams takes the questions that trouble the people today in these universal exacting times and applies to them the Christian viewpoint and values. He tackles the problems to social order - or, if you like disorder, the secularism in its varied forms. It is a carefully thought through reply to these problems beginnig from the simple first beliefs in God and the Creation and leads on from there.
It is a book that challenges preconceptions.
It is a book for the inquiring mind lost and seeking some solutions to unanswered questions & half spoken beliefs.
Built up through a series of individual chapters; each can be read as a stand alone piece of writing on the issues of today whether they be economics, multiracial societies or the place and need of the Church's influence in government today.
This is the best book of its kind and a necessary document in our time.
In the short time I have possessed it this book has opened my eyes to many aspects of the role of the church and its importance to our daily lives at all levels of the community.
