'Keith Ward . . . makes complex matters readily accessible.'
Rowan Williams

At the heart of Christian faith lies a vision of Christ present at the beginning of creation, in the crucified and risen Jesus, and at the end of all things. This vision retains its ancient power and gains new depth as it is reshaped in the light of our advanced understanding of a vast and evolving cosmos.

To help us form a truly contemporary Christian spirituality, Keith Ward, writing in our own time and place (rather than the fourteenth century of Julian of Norwich or the twentieth of Thomas Merton), offers a set of reflections on what he believes to be the unique and life-transforming revelation of God in the person of Jesus Christ. And as we explore the spiritual truths relating to this mystery expressed in the Gospels, meditation leads naturally to prayer.

Here's what you say about us...

Keith Ward recently retired as Regius Professor of Divinity and head of the Faculty of Theology at the University of Oxford. A priest of the Church of England and Canon of Christ Church, Oxford, he holds Doctor of Divinity degrees from Cambridge and Oxford Universities. Formerly Dean of Trinity Hall, Cambridge, and Professor of History and Philosophy of Religion at the University of London, he has lectured at the universities of Glasgow, St. Andrew's and Cambridge. He is a member of the Governing Council of the Royal Institute of Philosophy, and has taught at Drake University, Claremont Graduate School and the University of Tulsa. Keith Ward is known and loved for his teaching and academic books, but also for his recent books popularising theology, including What the Bible Really Teaches, published September 2004.

Keith Ward has long represented some of the most distinctive traditions of
British theology at its best - a strong and lucid philosophical basis, a keen and
informed engagement with natural science and a style of relaxed clarity which
makes complex matters readily accessible.
Rowan Williams, Master of Magdalen College, Cambridge
