There could be no better introduction to this enigmatic but profound Gospel. -- Praise for Meeting God in Mark * Morna D. Hooker, University of Cambridge *
This wonderful book shows how Mark's beautiful and subtle gospel still challenges our understanding of God, and of how God works in our lives. . . I could not put it down. -- Praise for Meeting God in Mark * Timothy Radcliffe, OP, Blackfriars, Oxford *
Forget the notion that Williams' writing is dense. This is chatty and colloquial. It should help preachers to get Paul 'right' (perhaps supplemented by some of Tom Wright's commentaries). -- Derek Jay * The Reader, Summer 2016 *
It is quite extraordinary how much Rowan Williams manages to include in one chapter - all beautifully, briefly and clearly explained... It is difficult to imagine a better short introduction to St Paul than this. -- Neil Richardson * Methodist Recorder *
Rowan William's patiently paced exercise represents, as a cover blurb puts it 'a lifetimes' learning and praying....distilled into profound simplicity. -- Markus Bockmuehl * The Times Literary Supplement *
Is ideal not only for personal reading but for work in groups. Indeed, it includes questions at the end for discussion, as well as selected readings for use during Lent. This is a book which draws on all the best Pauline scholarship of recent years while showing also the author's characteristic independence of mind and judgement. At the same time, it succeeds admirably in its aims of making that scholarship available in non-technical language. -- Richard Harries King's College * Theology Journal Issue 119.4 *
An asset to scholar and general reader alike. * The Furrow *
