Decently writ, XXV
IT IS thought often in our day and in our pulpits that theology has nothing to say to us in our time, that moralistic therapeutic deism is more relevant than theological inquiry and exposition, and that the church fathers are too male, white, and dead to have anything to say to a suffering 21st-century world. Not so, says Rowan Williams in his new book on Augustine.
Christian theology can be a vehicle for the most serious reflection on the nature of our humanity.1
