Welby writes about Reconciliation as seeking to disagree well. It relates to both religious and secular communities, from the household to the international. Conflict is widespread. With the after-effects of Covid, changes in science and technology, inequality, and increasingly polarized political and social strife, moves towards reconciliation are more necessary than ever. Both before ordination and since Welby has seen conflict first-hand. He has spent many years working on issues of conflict around the world. The book is full of practical advice for all those in authority on how to bring about reconciliation. There is even a step-by-step guide for this, drawn from the author's own experience. The book is thus down-to-earth, plugged into reality and devoid of pointless optimism or a Pollyannaish view of our contemporary problems. Furthermore, there is the dignity of difference. Today there is so much intolerance of views that are other than our own as we demonize those we do not agree with. This important book will be published in advance of the 2022 Lambeth Conference in July, when bishops from all round the world will assemble in Canterbury. But the importance of this book will go far beyond the confines of a Conference, which will nonetheless be widely reported. The influence of Desmond Tutu's Truth and Reconciliation Commission is evident in this book's pages.

Justin Welby

The Most Reverend Justin Welby is the present Archbishop of Canterbury and thus senior Bishop of the Anglican Communion throughout the world. He was formerly Bishop of Durham. He spent a number of years working full-time on reconciliation, especially in Sub-Saharan Africa. He is an honorary fellow of Trinity College, Cambridge. This is his third book for Bloomsbury Continuum.
