Rowan Williams has served as Archbishop of Canterbury through one of the most turbulent periods in the history of global Anglicanism. He has also faced numerous challenges within the Church of England. How has he coped with the huge issues of a divided church and a rapidly changing world? What has he done as Archbishop when parts of the Church are campaigning for an 'inclusive church' with gay partnered clergy and women bishops while others are determined to resist these developments? How has he related to other Christian traditions and those of other faiths? What has he said about the Iraq war, the Credit Crunch, Sharia Law? In this fascinating assessment of Rowan Williams' time in office, Andrew Goddard surveys Archbishop Rowan's time in office. He draws on his speeches and writings and also interviews and comments from those who have worked with him., Neither hagiography nor a hatchet-job, he shows the pressures faced by an academic scholar who only took on such a demanding role because he believed it to be God's call. What sort of leader has he been, and what sort of legacy does he leave? Will he prove to be the last Archbishop of Canterbury for a more or less united Church?
