Product description


Religious Studies Review
"Typical of Williams's work, the prose is lucid and often beautiful, and he demonstrates his knack for tackling issues which are quite complex, but in a manner which elucidates, clarifies, and leaves the reader with something new to ponder, all without dismantling or glossing over the very complexity he seeks to address."

The Christian Century
"Others would turn such a topic into a bone-dry lecture, but Williams's christological vision is thrilling."

The Living Church
"A refreshing and clear case for the importance of church history in Christian life today."


The old chestnut about being condemned to repeat the history we do not know applies to Church history as much as to anything else. But we are often these days at a loss to know how to approach it.
