A Faithful Presence - Essays for Kenneth Cragg
A Faithful Presence celebrates the impact and very special contribution that Bishop Kenneth Cragg has made throughout his long life to the interpretation of Islam and to the religious landscape of the Middle East. It includes contributions by Sydney Griffith, David Kerr, Christopher Lamb, Bishop Michael Nazir-Ali and Jørgen Nielsen, as well as a wide range of other contributors, and marks the ninetieth birthday of a man who to so many, Christians, Muslims and others, has been an example, mentor and friend.
As Archbishop Rowan Williams comments in his greeting, Kenneth Cragg's ‘theological engagement with other faiths, and notably Islam, is a tremendous asset at a time when wisdom in this sensitive field is so urgently needed.' A Faithful Presence is a fitting tribute to this great man of faith and quiet presence.
