Summary In this final published work of his Archiepiscopate, Dr Rowan Williams has assembled a series of chapters on matters of immediate public concern and the relationship of Christianity to these issues. Among his topics are 'Human Rights and Religious Faith', 'The Gifts Reserved for Age: Perceptions of the Elderly', and 'Analysing Atheism'. Archbishop Rowan Williams is the most gifted Anglican priest of his generation. His views are consistent and orthodox and yet he has been consistently misunderstood - especially in relation to his views on contemporary society, public morality and the common good.
