Timothy Radcliffe, Master of the Dominican Order, embodies, in a rare combination, the qualities of authority in high office with an openness to new ideas and a thoroughgoing honesty. Indeed, that honesty, accompanied at all times by a certain lightness of touch, is the mark of true humility and it gives his new book its distinctive appeal. I Call You Friends falls into two parts. In the first half, Father Radcliffe writes of his own life from a privileged childhood and education to his calling to the life of poverty and religious observance. In the second half there is a collected series of addresses and talks which the author has given to a wide range of audiences from Manila and Prague to Mexico. He talks of fundamental religious truths in a manner that is potent yet undogmatic. This inspiring new book is sure to add to the growing number of his admirers.
An inspiring collection of Fr Radcliffe's writings on his own life and his best addresses and talks, delivered all over the world.
About the Author
Timothy Radcliffe was Master of The Dominican Order. He is the winner of the 2007 Michael Ramsey prize for theological writing for his book What is the Point of Being a Christian? He was the author of The Archbishop of Canterbury's 2009 Lent Book Why Go to Church? He lives in Oxford but spends much of his year giving retreats, lectures and conference key-note addresses in the UK and overseas. A former Master of the world-wide Dominican Order, Timothy Radcliffe is now based in Oxford but remains an itinerant lecturer, broadcaster, preacher and retreat giver. His bestselling books include What's The Point of Being a Christian, What's The Point of Going to Church, Take the Plunge and I Call You Friends, all published by Bloomsbury Continuum.
"The eclectic nature of this readable little volume belies its substantial contribution to many of the hard questions being addressed in today's church. Radcliffe implicitly demonstrates what proves to be the book's greatest value--a way of moving outward from an essential set of beliefs about reality to a broad exploration of other viewpoints. Refreshing candor and engaging charm." Timothy Radcliffe [...] has the rare gift of combining intelligence, wisdom, humor and insight. I Call You Friends offers a warm, unfussy eloquence that is deeply attractive. Radcliffe's insights have an urgency for the church as it continues to receive Vatican II." Christopher Ruddy, America, December 2001 "The eclectic nature of this readable little volume belies its substantial contribution to many of the hard questions being addressed in today's church. Radcliffe implicitly demonstrates what proves to be the book's greatest value-a way of moving outward from an essential set of beliefs about reality to a broad exploration of other viewpoints. Refreshing candour and engaging charm." Patrick Marrin, Celebration, May 2002
