Wrestling with Angels gathers writings by Rowan Williams -- many now out of print or otherwise difficult to obtain -- spanning the years 1980–2000. It focuses on his insightful engagement with a range of modern theologians and philosophers -- Hegel, Wittgenstein, Barth, Bonhoeffer, Balthasar, Simone Weil, Marilyn McCord Adams, and more.
Key themes explored in this volume include negative theology, postmodernity, violence, innocence, divine action, and the nature of historical development in theology. Williams's powerfully coherent theological vision shines throughout. Nowhere else will readers find Williams dialoguing with such a breathtaking range of writers.
Rowan Williams served as the 104th Archbishop of Canterbury from 2002 to 2012 and is now Master of Magdalene College, University of Cambridge. A Fellow of the British Academy and an internationally recognized theologian, he was previously Lady Margaret Professor of Divinity at the University of Oxford, Bishop of Monmouth, and Archbishop of Wales.
Times Literary Supplement "This is a marvelous collection, full of riches, in equal measures provocative and profound."
