Jesus Christ: The Unanswered Questions

Rowan Williams (2019)

Listen to this article


St Paul’s Cathedral

Rowan Williams says that how we understand Jesus Christ is central to how we understand everything, and he wrestles with the defining question of our faith – who Jesus is. Recorded at St Paul’s Cathedral on Wednesday 27 March 2019.

It is a lecture referencing Williams’ publication, Christ the Heart of Creation.

WN: An outstanding lecture. Delightful. Profound. Uplifting. The book promises all that, and more! Of it we read:

In this wide-ranging book, Rowan Williams argues that what we say about Jesus Christ is key to understanding what Christian belief says about creator and creation overall. Through detailed discussion of texts from the earliest centuries to the present day, we are shown some of the various and subtle ways in which Christians have discovered in their reflections on Christ the possibility of a deeply affirmative approach to creation, and a set of radical insights in ethics and politics as well.
