What People are saying


Rowan Williams, former Archbishop of Canterbury

Oliver Clément is one of the really original Christian minds of the last generation, poetic, visionary and profound. His work is still exceptionally fresh, offering an exhilarating sense of the scale and beauty of traditional Christianity for our era, and it needs to be far more widely known. This fine translation of an early work of his shows the quality of his mind and imagination and I hope it will whet the appetite of many readers to discover more. 

Rodney Purcell Devenish, Buddhist Meditation instructor, founder of Kunzang Samten Yangtse Hermitage

This is a profound meditation on religious history in general. The question of time and its relation to the meaning and understanding of Christianity, and that of space and the temporal dimension relative to the transcendental remains one of the greatest mysteries confronting the human mind.
