'More and more attention is being paid to this profoundly original theologian, and the essays in this book are a model of intelligent and creative engagement. The inclusion of an unpublished lecture series by Farrer himself is an unexpected bonus, and every Farrer enthusiast will want to have these significant new texts at hand.' -- Dr Rowan Williams, Master, Magdalene College Cambridge
