Teaser Tuesday - 9 June

Teaser Tuesday

The rules are:
  • Grab your current read.
  • Let the book fall open to a random page.
  • Share with us two (2) 'teaser' sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
  • You also need to share the title and author of the book that you’re getting your 'teaser' from .. that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you've given!
In the theological scheme to which Rowan felt increasingly drawn, liberals tended to err through saying too little, while many conservatives overlooked the dangers of saying too much. The most credible stance was based on a balance between two sorts of awareness - that religious truth (as opposed to the truth revealed in a test tube) can never be simple or slick, because it lies at a depth where things are often murky; but the burrowing process must be engaged in with unflagging commitment nonetheless.
Rupert Shortt's Rowan's Rule a biography (though the cover says 'the biography') of Rowan Williams. I nearly foundered in the preface(!), but it is worth persisting - at least so far. As promised last week, another study - maybe I'm prejudging it - of compromise.
