It focuses on his insightful engagement with a wide range of modern theologians and philosophers - Vladimir Lossky, Hegel, Wittegenstein, Bonhoeffer, von Balthasar, Marice Wiles, Gillian Rose, Marilyn McCord Adams, and many more. Key themes explored in this collection include negative theology, postmodernity, violence, innocence, divine action and the nature of historical development in theology. Brought together these profound themes illuminate Williams powerfully coherent theological vision. Many of the included papers are now out of print or are otherwise difficult to obtain.
