A fresh look at the foundation story of the Christian faith by one of the world’s greatest living theologians.
Full of illuminating theological insights, and with questions for discussion or personal reflection at the end of each chapter, God With Us is the perfect book for all those who want to deepen their understanding and appreciation of the heart of the gospel.
God With Us is a book of two parts, joined together by the pen of Rowan Williams into a beautiful whole. Be considering the meaning of the Cross and the meaning of the Resurrection, and taking care to link these two to both their context and our context, God With Us faithfully and creatively explains and proclaims the way that God loves us.

--Lucy Winkett, Rector of St James’ Church, Piccadilly
