A. N. Wilson has reviewed the new biography of Dr. Rowan Williams, the archbishop of Canterbury, for The Times of London. He likes both, the bio and the bishop.
An interesting point -- I can't believe "never" either --
"From the beginning of Williams’s academic career, Shortt stresses the conservatism. “He never really doubted that the Synoptic Gospels provide . . . a historically reliable record of Jesus’ mission." Never? In the case of a mind as subtle as Williams’s, one wonders in what sense this can be possible."
