Rowan's Rule free pdf Rupert Shortt's celebrated biography of Archbishop Rowan Williams provides a rich assessment of an exceptional but much-maligned churchman as he seeks to steer the Anglican Communion through the stormiest period in its history. Rowan Williams's decisions have upset both conservatives and progressives alike. Is he playing a long game, obliged to rate church unity above the pursuit of his own vision? Written with Dr Williams's cooperation and including lucid summaries of the Archbishop's ideas, Rupert Shortt's book answers this question and many more.
