Publisher's Description

The Edge of Words is Rowan Williams' first book since standing down as Archbishop of Canterbury. Invited to give the prestigious 2014 Gifford Lectures, Dr Williams has produced a scholarly but eminently accessible account of the possibilities of speaking about God – taking as his point of departure the project of natural theology. Dr Williams enters into dialogue with thinkers as diverse as Augustine and Simone Weil and authors such as Joyce, Hardy, Burgess and Hoban in what is a compelling essay about the possibility of language about God.

Author Bio

The former Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr Williams has held prestigious chairs at both Oxford and at Cambridge University. He has published a number of important and influential books including The Wound of Knowledge, Lost Icons and Faith in the Public Square, his last book as Archbishop.
