Overview

What does it mean to believe in God? Can God possibly be almighty in the midst of so much evil and disaster? How am I to understand the meaning of Jesus Christ's ministry and resurrection? To what purpose is the church called? And what does it really mean to follow Christ in today's broken world? Tying together the answers to all of these questions and addressing perplexities such as the possibility of miracles and how to read the Bible, Rowan Williams demonstrates that each of the basic tenets of Christian faith flows from one fundamental belief: that God is completely worthy of our trust. With vast knowledge of Christian history and theology and characteristically elegant prose, Rowan Williams is a superb and compassionate guide through the richness and depth of Christian faith.

    God's Trustworthiness in a Misbelieving World

    This book is a delightful and thoughtful presentation of the dynamics of faith in practice, rather than an abstract set of beliefs one must accept. Rowan Williams, Archbishop of Canterbury, explores the personal and historical meaning of key practices and worship themes in the Christian community of faith.

    He addresses the forms and concepts and how they have arisen out of cultural thought. This book will be helpful for those who wonder if ther is more to it than they have thought. But he always stays focuses on the personal meaning of Christian faith in practice. He writes warmly and personally, so we feel we are listening in as he thinks through things.

    The reader will find here a very clear and deep commitment to the historical stream of faith while feeling free with the archbishop to acknowledge and bypass the great errors made by the church or certain Christian leaders art various times in our past. Williams looks at the symbols in Christian worship and evaluates their meaning and value in the changed and changing culture and society we now live in.

    This little volume is a tightly designed, with no fluff and waste in his wording. Williams is a scholar who retains his common humanity and is articulate without becoming arcane. He draws upon a wide range of sources, referencing Eastern Orthodox practice and mystics, for instance, to give us a broader picture of how Christian believers have expressed their faith in their cultural setting.

    The thoughtful practical scholar focuses further on the underlying unity of meaning, intent and focus among all Christian believers. He assists us also to see how these represent universal values, not parochial concerns of one time or place.

    As I read I got he feeling I was involved in a warm, comfortable conversation with a person sharing his deepest understandings of life in thoughtful reflection.
