In Conversation: Rowan Williams and Greg Garrett
- Second volume of the In Conversation series
- Insights into the art of listening from former Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams and author Greg Garrett
How is God speaking into our lives today? How do Christians discern what they're being called to do? How do literature and culture intersect with the Scriptures and our tradition? And what might the work of the artist teach us about both spiritual practice and the vocational tasks of preaching and teaching? Be a fly on the wall and listen in as dear friends—one who happens to be the past Archbishop of Canterbury, the other, "one of the Episcopal Church's most engaging evangelists" (Barbara Brown Taylor)—discuss their longtime passions and shared interests. In this new volume of the "In Conversation series," Rowan Williams and Greg Garrett talk about friendship, the Church, the gift of great novels, the importance of Shakespeare, the art of writing poetry and fiction, the preaching event, engaging popular culture, the relationship between faith and politics, the practice of prayer, and the necessity of sacred community, modeling for us in the process both the vanishing art of conversation and an active engagement with faith, culture, and real life.
Rowan Williams and Greg Garrett share an interest in things of faith, the written word (especially plays, poetry, and fiction), and a good conversation. In this volume, the next in the In Conversation series, they take on all three, especially through the lens of listening.
