Review:

''It is a privilege to enter into the mind of one of the most distinguished theologians of the modern age. Being Christian deals in matters that are necessarily complex, but the style is elegant and lucid, and the book, although written primarily for Christians, will be interesting and helpful to those who are seekers after, rather than finders of, religious faith.'' --P. D. James, OBE, FRSA, FRSL, novelist

''Christianity is both simple and profound. Rowan Williams understands these two levels, and how we come to the depth of what Jesus is by the simplicities of informed Christian practice. This is a handbook for Christian living.'' --Sister Wendy Beckett

''With clarity, depth and simplicity, Rowan Williams takes us into the heart of what it means to be Christian. A lifetime's immersion in theology and devotion lies hidden behind this fresh and illuminating sketch of the essentials.'' --Frances Young, OBE, FBA, Emeritus Professor of Theology, University of Birmingham
