Wrestling with Angels is a collection of writings by Rowan Williams spanning 1980-2000 and focusing on his insightful engagement with a wide range of modern theologians and philosophers - from Vladimir Lossky, whose work was a key impetus early in Williams' career, through a range of classic figures like Hegel, Wittgenstein, Weil and Girard, or Barth, Bonhoeffer, Rahner and von Balthasar, and on to more recent figures such as Don Cupitt, Maurice Wiles, Gillian Rose and Marilyn McCord Adams. Many of the papers published here are now out of print or are otherwise difficult to obtain.
"Wrestling with Angels" is for anyone interested in Rowan William's theology, be they a member of the Anglican clergy or a student of modern theology.
The key themes explored across these essays are: negative theology, postmodernity, violence, innocence, divine action and the nature of historical development in theology which, brought together in this volume, illuminate Williams' powerfully coherent theological vision.
