Wrestling With Angels: Conversations in Modern Theology

£11.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

Wrestling With Angels brings together a thoughtful collection of writings by Rowan Williams spanning the years between 1978 and 1998. They focus on his insightful engagement with a wide range of modern theologians and philosophers ranging from Vladimir Lossky, whose work was a key impetus early in Williams' career, through a range of classic figures including Hegel, Wittgenstein, Weil and Girard, as well as Barth, Bonhoeffer, Rahner and von Balthasar, and on to more recent figures such as Don Cupitt, Maurice Wiles, Gillian Rose and Marilyn McCord Adams.

The key themes explored across these essays are negative theology, postmodernity, violence, innocence, divine action and the nature of historical development in theology. Brought together in this volume, they illuminate Williams' powerfully coherent theological vision.
Many of the papers published here are now out of print or are otherwise difficult to obtain. Wrestling With Angels is for anyone interested in Rowan Williams' theology, be they a member of the Anglican clergy or a student of modern theology.
