Archbishop Rowan Williams is the most gifted Anglican priest of his generation. His views are consistent and orthodox and yet he has been consistently misunderstood - especially in relation to his views on contemporary society, public morality, and the common good.
In this, the final published work of his Archepiscopate, Dr Williams has assembled a series of chapters on matters of immediate public concern and the relationship of Christianity to these issues. Among his topics are "Has Secularism Failed?: Europe, Faith and Culture", "Human Rights and Religious Faith", "Changing the Myths We Live By", "Housekeeping: The Economic Challenge", "The Gifts Reserved for Age: Perceptions of the Elderly", and "Analysing Atheism".

Rowan Williams sets out a strong argument for how faith can tackle inequality in society. It is long, and quite dry and intellectual in places for me, but his talk on empowering the voiceless is inspiring. It is read well too. I was privileged to meet him some years ago as a city Councilor, and he doesn't fail to challenge 6 years on.
I'm a self employed window cleaner and i listen while i work
I could tell this was well written, in the brief listen I could stand .
I wish with such a prominent UK figure as Rowan they had not chosen an american to narrate .
I thought the narration seemed not to flow with the content as it should .
I am going to return this one
