The Power of Reconciliation will come to be seen as Archbishop Welby's most important book to date. Today there is so much intolerance of views that are other than our own as we demonize those we do not agree with. 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. This book is full of practical and insightful advice relating to both religious and secular communities, from the household to the international, on how to bring about reconciliation. There is even a step-by-step guide, drawn from the author’s own experience, which is extensive – both before ordination and since, Welby has seen conflict first-hand. His earlier career as a corporate executive gave him important insights on conflict resolution, and as leader of the global Anglical Communion, he has spent many years helping people work through their differences all over the world. Welby writes about Reconciliation as seeking to disagree well, also pointing out the dignity of difference. The book is thus down-to-earth, plugged into reality and devoid of pointless optimism, and yet hopefulness for the future can be found in Welby’s words throughout.

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.

While some books peter out before they finish, this one keeps going to the end, and the third section offers some of the more rewarding pages in the book. * Church Times * In this solid guide, Welby, the archbishop of Canterbury, offers advice on how to find common ground with adversaries. The author's stories about working for the International Centre for Reconciliation illuminate how to put the principles into action, and readers will appreciate his pragmatic advice. This helpful program belongs on shelves next to Desmond Tutu's No Future Without Forgiveness. * Publishers Weekly * There is something splendid and heroic about the Archbishop's commitment to reconciliation. * Church of England Newspaper * A book written for our times. Welby's exploration of the moral imagination, bolstered by his exquisite intellect and engaging storytelling, validate his thesis that disagreeing well "is the very cornerstone of Christian faith". * The Tablet * ... Archbishop Justin's prose [is] approachable and perspicuous... An excellent tool to help us work towards [reconciliation]. * Premier Christianity * A good read. * Church of England Newspaper *
