Nondualism, Divine Life and Now – on Looking East in Winter by Rowan Williams

A MP3 version of the talk can be found here.

Rowan Williams has written another hugely significant book, one ripe with meaning for now.

In this talk, I unpack its themes of non-dualism and Trinitarian life, eros and kenosis, politics and justice, seeing truthfully and destroying the world.
