Living Free by H.A. Williams
Book DescriptionH.A. Williams' impact was astonishing - most remarkably through his published masterpiece, "The True Wilderness". During the last decades of his life he was often asked to publish more, but refused. After his death in January 2006, a typescript was found in his desk which he had been working on during these years and which we are now proud to publish. Along with this, "Living Free" contains a number of other unpublished writings of great significance.Quoting Martin Buber's dictum that 'there is nothing that so masks the face of God as religion', Williams moves beyond traditional theological language to outline a new view which does not contradict Christian orthodoxy but moves beyond it. He is doubtful about a personal relationship between God and man in Christ, in the usual sense, but articulates an epistemology of un-knowing as the most profound way of experiencing God.Williams himself once said of his writings 'All I can write of are those things which I had proved true in my own experience by living them and thus knowing them at first hand.' "Living Free" is a further demonstration of Williams' extraordinary vision and imagination.' His heartening and profoundly sympathetic insight into our humanity and into the relationship between God and man - what he called "our identity with Life Universal, with God" - will live on through the power and presence of his words.' - from the foreword by H.R.H, The Prince of Wales.
