Review: God with Us: The Meaning of the Cross and Resurrection – Then and Now

God with Us: The Meaning of the Cross and Resurrection - Then and NowGod with Us: The Meaning of the Cross and Resurrection – Then and Now by Rowan Williams
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A thoughtful and insightful book from the former Archbishop of Canterbury that focuses attention on two fundamental aspects of Christianity: the Cross and the Resurrection.

Lest you think this some lightweight reflection, it is not. This book represents the fruits of many years of academic writing and reflection, and comes from a place of certainty of belief that is both personal and professional. This two foundational aspects of Christianity – without which Christianity wouldn’t exist, and which some Christians wish to water down or run from – are dealt with sensitively yet passionately, and with the aim of encouraging readers to dive deeply into these fundamental aspects of Christian belief.

This book is well-written as would be expected, and exceptionally engaging and readable. Well worth reading.
