Item description for Living Free by H. A. Williams & HRH the Prince of Wales...
H.A. Williams' impact was astonishing - most remarkably through his published masterpiece "The True Wilderness."During the last decades of his life he was often asked to publish more, but refused. After his death in January 2006, a typescript was found inhis desk which he had been working on during these years and which weare now proud to publish. Along with this, "Living Free" contains a number of other unpublished writings of great significance.
Quoting Martin Buber's dictum that 'there is nothing that so masksthe face of God as religion', Williams moves beyond traditionaltheological language to outline a new view which does not contradictChristian orthodoxy but moves beyond it. He is doubtful about apersonal relationship between God and man in Christ, in the usualsense, but articulates an epistemology of un-knowing as the mostprofound way of experiencing God.
Williams himself once said of his writings 'All I can write of arethose things which I had proved true in my own experience by livingthem and thus knowing them at first hand.' "Living Free" is a further demonstration of Williams' extraordinary vision and imagination.
'His heartening and profoundly sympathetic insight into our humanityand into the relationship between God and man - what he called "ouridentity with Life Universal, with God" - will live on through thepower and presence of his words.' - from the foreword by H.R.H ThePrince of Wales
