              MICHAEL RAMSEY (1905-1988) was one of the greatest Anglican archbishops of the twentieth century and a man of spiritual depth who inspired a generation of Christians. Evangelical by origin, catholic by formation, and liberal by instinct, Ramsey learned from many traditions and, a...s Archbishop of Canterbury, moved ecumenical dialogue into a new and decisive phase. A remarkable spiritual leader, he continues to be remembered as both reverent and visionary. Glory Descending serves both as an introduction to Ramsey's life and as a reader of his key writings. The introductory chapter gives an overview of Ramsey's career and explains why he was such a significant figure in recent church history. The large selection of Ramsey's writings that follows makes readily accessible the essence of his thought. Drawn from all of his works, these powerful passages constitute an exceptionally consistent body of spiritual theology and teaching. Here we have not just a voice from the past but a prophetic call to holiness and faith in our own times. Also included are reflections by leading churchmen and scholars on Ramsey's continuing influence. Four pieces by Rowan Williams probe distinctive themes in Ramsey's thought. John Habgood and Geoffrey Rowell offer lectures prepared for the centenary of Ramsey's birth. Douglas Dales explores the contours of Ramsey's spiritual theology. Finally, the book has been designed as a companion to the Christian liturgical year, making it an invaluable aid to preaching, teaching, and devotions. Douglas Dales is Chaplain and Head of Religious Studies at Marlborough College, England, and the author of Glory: The Spiritual Theology of Michael Ramsey. John Habgood is the former Archbishop of York, England, and the author of Being a Person: Where Faith and Science Meet. Geoffrey Rowell is Bishop of Gibraltar in Europe and the author of The Vision Glorious: Themes and Personalities of the Catholic Revival in Anglicanism and The English Religious Tradition and t
