Quick Overview

A response of Timothy Radcliffe, a spiritual leader whose talks and broadcasts surprise.

Details

Timothy Radcliffe is in demand the world over with Bishops, priests, lay people and above all young people. This new book is his response. Timothy Radcliffe is a charismatic spiritual leader and a rare bird. His talks and broadcasts always surprise. A man with strong liberal instincts, he has held high office in the Roman Catholic Church and has a profound respect for the authority and teaching charisma of his Church. He is constantly in demand as a speaker, lecturer, preacher and broadcaster and in this new volume he has assembled the best of the addresses he has given over the last three years. At times, he is encouraging liturgical reform at others encouraging local Bishops to stand up to Rome. With political sympathies to the left of centre, he shows himself in this new book to be passionately concerned with issues relating to environment, globalisation and the pastoral care of the marginalised and dispossessed. The constant freshness of his message has made this aristocratic Englishman a man for all people and he packs in audiences from Rome to Toronto, from Helsinki to Rio de Janeiro. Shot through with humour, friendship and wisdom, the pages of this book outline a manner of living which is at once faithful to the teachings of Jesus and rooted in the tradition of the church and at the same time responsive to the turbulence of the modern world. He is a prophet for our times.
