Rowan Williams freely admits to the profound influence of Michael Ramsey, one of the greatest Archbishops of the 20th century and a man of great spiritual depth who inspired a generation of Anglicans. Apart from one or two exceptions, his books are out of print, and many will welcome this new selection of his writings. Arranged around the church's year, it explores all the great themes of the Christian faith and is ideal for devotional reading, for study and for sermon preparation.

Review quote

"Bishops, clergy and lay ministers must read it, if not all at once, then as a regular form of 'spiritual reading' or in preparation for pastoral opportunities. Religious and lay people alike will find much to prompt and deepen reflection in this testimony to Archbishop Michael Ramsey. And it may even be - and this should cause us no surprise - that those who read it become a little more holy, a little more like him." -- Charles Miller, Fairacres Chronicle, Winter 2005, Vol.38, N Degrees2.
