   schema:reviewBody ""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. Among many other achievements he has trounced the atheist Richard Dawkins, and published over twenty well-regarded books, including several volumes of poetry and a major study of Dostoevsky." "Yet he is also one of the most reviled church leaders in modern history. Long before facing calls to step down after his lecture on sharia law in 2008, he had been accused of heresy on account of his pro-gay views, and begged to resign by conservative members of his own flock. He had disappointed many of his own supporters as well. Progressives who expected him to champion the cause of clergy in same-sex relationships were dismayed by what seemed like his ragged retreat on the issue." "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. Written with Rowan Williams's cooperation, it not only elucidates his ideas, but gives a compelling portrait of a private and in some ways surprisingly vulnerable man."--BOOK JACKET." ;
