A Faith To Live By is a compilation of interviews with 25 of the world's leading Christian authors, scholars and spiritual teachers, all in conversation with award-winning journalist Roland Ashby.
The interviewees include Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams, Shane Claiborne, John Lennox, Keith Ward, Joan Chittister, Christopher Jamison, Helen Prejean, Jim Wallis and Brian McClaren.
Many of the interviews grapple with difficult questions such as 'Why does God allow suffering?'; explore the interviewees' personal prayer and meditation practices and experiences of the divine, eternal and transcendent; and seek wise and prophetic insight into the state of both society and the church today.
Intelligent, candid and searching – this collection comprises a fascinating and thought-provoking exploration of contemporary Christian faith.
Roland Ashby is editor of The Melbourne Anglican newspaper and director of communications for the Anglican Diocese of Melbourne. He holds a master's degree in Theology, and is a Benedictine oblate.
