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.

Reviews

"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
