Rowan Williams suggests that the Christian faith is the practice of making sense of lives that make sense of the world. Jesus tells stories so as to change people's world. His parables push us towards getting away from cliches and towards another world where we don't yet know the end of our story, and where the categories and conventions we've been taking for granted don't automatically apply. Thus the story has power and purpose. In this book, Rowan Willians offers reflections on the lives of people whose stories have the power to break some of the categories open and invite the reader into a new world. People whose lives are 'theological' lives are worth thinking about because they make sense of critical, desperate of unusual situations. In this sequence of short meditations, Rowan Williams invites you to reflect on the lives and legacies of twenty great Christians - saints, martyrs, poets, theologians and social reformers - all of whom continue to illuminate our spiritual landscape, pointing us towards new horizons and fresh pathways to follow. Let these meditations light up your own Christian journey, sharpen your spiritual vision, and deepen your love for `the One who has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ' (2 Corinthians 4.6). This hardback book is in 146pp.
