Michael Ramsey: a life
This authorized biography is a masterly account of the life and works of Michael Ramsey (1904-1988), the former Archbishop of Canterbury. Chadwick describes Ramsey in the unsettled European age in which he lived, discussing in compelling detail the liberalization of sexual mores, the impact of television on politics and opinions of morality, the arguments over the restatement of religious truth, and the post-colonial period in Africa. Focusing on Ramsey's career in Parliament and Christendom, the book reveals the Archbishop as a person of much prayer and conviction, who in an age of shaken opinion was an anchor of faith and hope among a pessimistic generation.
