Rowan Williams: An Introduction. Harrisburg, Pennsylvania: Morehouse Publishing, 2003. Although the books have varying strengths and weaknesses, they offer valuable comparisons and contrasts between the two archbishops and the aspects of Anglicanism that they represent.

Rupert Shortt, already the author of an acclaimed introduction to the Archbishop's thought, now offers answers to these and other questions in this authoritative biography. Rowan Williams is a complex and controversial figure. Widely revered for his personal qualities, he is also an intellectual giant who towers over almost all his predecessors as Archbishop of Canterbury.

A long biographical chapter is followed by three further sections on key aspects of Williams's theology, spirituality and politics. The result is a sympathetic but not uncritical profile of a leader with unmatched talents for enhancing dialogue between Christianity and secular culture.

The first occupant of Lambeth Palace in several generations with an international reputation as a theologian, he is nevertheless often considered a difficult writer, more admired than read and understood.

Rowan Williams is an intellectual - a theologian - and yet an approachable and modest man widely seen as the last, best hope for the Church of England. And yet six years on from his appointment as 104th Archbishop of Canterbury, the world's third-largest Christian denomination is sunk in crisis, hostility and schism

A long biographical chapter is followed by three further sections on key aspects of Williams's theology, spirituality and politics.

My son, who is a voracious reader, refers to Rowan Williams as "An Hairy Man" (thank you, Alan Bennett). But beard and eyebrows notwithstanding there is nothing hairy about + Rowan Cantuar's thinking. Complex, perhaps, but the field of human endeavour over which his mind ranges is vast, and this "introduction", now supplemented by the author's more recent "Rowan's Rule" gives valuable insights into the mind of a clear-thinking theologian who is doing his best to keep the hallowed traditions of Christianity and the fresh thought of our often turbulent times in creative tension.
Readers who want to chart the consistencies and the developments of Williams' writings have been well served by Rupert Shortt's informed and informative volumes.

This little book about the new Archbishop of Canterbury is of great value to Anglicans as well as non-Anglicans. Williams is a world-class Christian theologian (the first to occupy Canterbury since William Temple during WWII), but he's also a fine social commentator and evocative poet. Shortt's treatment provides a good overview of Williams' career as academic, parish priest (putting the lie to those who claim that Williams has no pastoral experience), and bishop. This information will fill in many gaps for readers who have only vague ideas of where Williams came from. More important, however, is Shortt's treatment of Williams' philosophy, theology, spirituality, and politics. Williams comes across as a very traditional defender of the Anglican via media when it comes to ecclesiological issues, but as something of a mystic in matters theological. He's very taken, for example, with the mystery--contradiction, a secular logician might say--that lies at the heart of Christianity: God become human, the darkness of faith as brilliance, and so on. One suspects that his mystical leanings stem from both his Welsh background and his absorption of Eastern Christianity, both Greek and Russian Orthodoxy. A pleasant surprise along the way is Shortt's brief discussion of the influence of Gillian Rose on Williams. I wasn't familiar with Rose's work before this book. She's well worth reading in her own right.

This is a marvelous little book. It shows how and why Rowan Williams defies simple categorization. Don't let the brevity of the book fool you - it's packed with insights about Williams' thought and it will make YOU think. Highly recommended!
