Wrestling with Angels: Conversations in Modern Theology
Wrestling with Angels gathers writings by Rowan Williams -- many now out of print or otherwise difficult to obtain -- spanning the years 1980-2000. It focuses on his insightful engagement with a range of modern theologians and philosophers -- Hegel, Wittgenstein, Barth, Bonhoeffer, Balthasar, Simone Weil, Marilyn McCord Adams, and more.
Key themes explored in this volume include negative theology, postmodernity, violence, innocence, divine action, and the nature of historical development in theology. Williams's powerfully coherent theological vision shines throughout. Nowhere else will readers find Williams dialoguing with such a breathtaking range of writers.
