A major new series, the 'Fount Christian Thinkers' provides accessible and stimulating introductions to the lives and works of the most influential Christians throughout the ages. From theologians and mystics to lay-people and clerics, these people have shaped our intellectual and spiritual heritage, and still have enormous relevance for our world today.
Simone Weil (1909 – 1943) was one of the most original philosophers and political thinkers of this century. She came to Christianity late in life, bringing with her a refreshing creativity and a rare ability to confront theological complacencies.
“Stephen Plant portrays the immense strength and the touching vulnerability of Simone Weil, the complex nature of her convictions, and the startling and continuing relevance of her views today.”
DONALD ENGLISH, Chairman of the World Methodist Council
