An anthology of 33 talks, articles, lectures and sermons by one of the most outstanding theologians of her generation. Elizabeth Templeton's accessible and passionate writing is both refreshing and thought-provoking, exploring ideas that concern us all - life, freedom, forgiveness, death, love, evil, culture and belonging, amongst many others. All the pieces dive with apparent effortlessness to the heart of the issues, combining brilliant original scholarship with a warm sensitivity to the difficulties of many people in decoding theology, relating it to their own life and thought.

Peter Matheson, Alastair Hulbert

Peter Matheson is a theologian who has lectured in theology in the UK, New Zealand, Australia and the USA. From 1965 and 1982 he was Lecturer/Senior Lecturer in Ecclesiastical History at New College, Faculty of Divinity, Edinburgh University. Alastair Hulbert is a practical theologian and ecumenist, who worked for 20 years in Europe - Paris, Geneva, and latterly in the European churches office in Brussels. He was Warden of Scottish Churches House, Dunblane (2003-2008).

'This collection of [Templeton's] unpublished addresses and writings testifies [that] she brought as much theological acuteness and passion to sermons in local churches as she did to the World Council of Churches Assembly, or the Lambeth Conference... Matheson and Hulbert have negotiated their [editorial] assignment sensitively and coherently. ... Readers will find many valuable nuggets for themselves' * The Church Times * 'This is a wonderful book! I do not remember ever being so excited by theological writing. I found In your Loving is your Knowing un-put-down-able and recommend it with unqualified enthusiasm. [Templeton's] style and material are a very appealing combination of the cerebral and the down-to-earth, full of humour and a seasoning of personal anecdotes and quotations from the poetry she loved so much' -- Norman Shanks * Coracle * '[Elizabeth Templeton] was known and appreciated for her freedom of speech and attentiveness to anyone and everything ... Her interest in the Church's relationship with the world is what comes out in these texts. Elizabeth Templeton was worried about the tendency for the Churches in the West to see the growing secularisation of society as a threat which in turn fostered a negative attitude within these Churches to the world beyond. Elizabeth Templeton saw how this condemnatory attitude led not only to a dwindling of the Churches' influence in society but all too often to an incomplete transmission of the Gospel's message. ... I feel the editors were fully justified in giving a secondary title to this book, "Elizabeth Templeton - Prophet of our Times"' * Conference of European Churches *
