Call of eternity

To me, the best place to read any great book is at the ocean side, a sun-drenched, dune-crested symbol of eternity. Though it may be cold where you are, picture me under an umbrella at the shore.

The Poems of Rowan Williams

Rowan Williams, archbishop of Canterbury since 2002, is the first Welshman in 1,000 years to hold the office. A theologian of some renown, he has stirred up controversy with his outspoken position in support of the ordination of gay clergy and various other liberal causes.

Christian politics

No one should accuse Oliver O’Donovan of tackling easy topics. In The Desire of the Nations (Cambridge University Press, 1999) he defended an idea most of us thought was dead and buried: Christendom.

Faith, Reason and the Existence of God/The Creativity of God

Denys Turner and Oliver Davies previously collaborated on Silence and the Word (2002), so it is not surprising that in these two books they have something compatible and complementary to say.
