CHRISTIANITY. The aim of this book is twofold: One is to counter the huge weight of column inches being spent on the perceived, and actual, persecution of Islam. The second is to turn up the volume on the side of Christians rather than Atheists (a position which has been underpinned so vociferously by Dawkins et al in recent times). In fact there have been - and still are - many terrible stories of murder, oppression and persecution of Christians around the world, in East Timor, Burma, Egypt, China, Iran, and many other countries. The reason we don't hear much about them, says the author, is the fear of giving offence; the fact young Christians don't become radicalised; and persecuted Christians tend not to respond with violence. Yet Christians are persecuted in greater numbers than any other global religious body, and this fact is severely under-recognised
Rowan Williams : an introduction by Rupert Shortt ( Book )
3 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 202 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The first occupant of Lambeth Palace in several generations with an international reputation as a theologian, Rowan Williams is nevertheless often considered a difficult writer, more admired than read and understood. Many people remain puzzled by how his social radicalism can coexist with a reputation for orthodoxy in doctrine." "Rowan Williams: An Introduction is the first book to chart the Archbishop's career and evolution as a thinker. A long biographical chapter is followed by three further sections on key aspects of Williams' 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."--BOOK JACKET
