This just in: a generous publicity blurb from Rowan Williams about the book. It came with a lovely personal word –“All best wishes and many thanks for letting me read this.”
Crisp, practical and searching, this excellent book combines a solid theological perspective fully informed by the depths of the Christian spiritual tradition with a vigorous and very contemporary insight into a culture that has largely forgotten what sin means. Treading the right line between melodramatic and guilt-inducing rhetoric and bland modern self-absolution, it offers an understanding of human sinfulness that is both demanding and hopeful, and helps us rediscover the tools of proper self-knowledge before God.
