Teresa of Avila by Williams

Book Description

Archbishop Rowan Williams's study of Teresa of Avila exemplifies his own deep spiritual theology. Together with her contemporary and friend, St. John of the Cross, Teresa of Avila stands at the highest point of Catholic spiritual writing in the troubled age of the Reformation and Counter-Reformation. She is also one of the founding figures of modern Spanish literature. Teresa's vivid descriptions of her experiences in prayer have long made her an object of intense interest to psychologists of religion. This book makes use of recent historical research on Teresa and her society and provides a full introduction to all her major works. It shows Teresa as more than just a chronicler of paranormal states of consciousness. She emerges as a genuine theologian in her own right, with a powerful contribution to make to contemporary understanding of God.

Lost Icons by Williams Lost Icons, Paperback (August 2002)

In his remarks upon being named Archbishop of Canterbury, Rowan Williams spoke of the Christian creed and Christian vision (that) have in them a life and a richness that can embrace and transfigure all the complexities of human life. Confidence in that creed, he said, saves us from being led by fashion.
