Exploring some of the finest passages in English prose and poetry, from William Tyndale to the end of the twentieth century, Rowan Williams pursues strands of thought in Christian contemplation which reflect on social responsibility. He perceives this approach as being deeply characteristic of the Anglican spirit and invites us to recognize its enduring significance in our own day.
