He Came Down From Heaven
There is nothing of today's easy populist spirituality in this volume originally published in 1938. Williams explores ideas of creation, the Fall, the Incarnation and the atonement, and finally transcendent love and how love is known by humanity—taking a page from Dante. Never far from a shaft of deft sidelong humor at contemporary Christian misapprehensions, some of which have persisted to our day, Williams's rich language requires patience and a willingness to think, and richly rewards the persistent. Readers who have a taste for mystical Anglican writings of the early 20th century will appreciate Williams as a shining light of the era.
