Pretty hard going but worth the effort,
This review is from: Why Study the Past? (Paperback)
Reading this book gave me a much better understanding of why the church is the way it is, why certain traditions exist in different wings of the church and the Godly root of each. I think it will help me communicate more effectively with people in different christian traditions to me.
It also gave me a better understanding of Rowan Williams - his depth of thought, his compassion, his love for God and for the church.
I won't deny that it was quite a challenging read, though - I certainly wouln't like to play Rowan Williams at scrabble!
