In this wide-ranging book, Rowan Williams argues that what we say
about Jesus Christ is key to understanding what Christian belief
says about creator and creation overall. Through detailed
discussion of texts from the earliest centuries to the present day,
we are shown some of the various and subtle ways in which
Christians have discovered in their reflections on Christ the
possibility of a deeply affirmative approach to creation, and a set
of radical insights in ethics and politics as well. Throughout his
life, Rowan Williams has been deeply influenced by thinkers of the
Eastern Christian tradition as well as Catholic and Anglican
writers. This book draws on insights from Eastern Christianity,
from the Western Middle Ages and from Reformed thinkers, from
Calvin to Bonhoeffer - as well as considering theological insights
sparked by philosophers like Kierkegaard and Wittgenstein. Christ
the Heart of Creation concerns fundamental issues for Christian
belief and Williams tackles them head-on: he writes with pellucid
clarity and shows his gift for putting across what are inevitably
complex ideas to a wide audience.
