About-

'The Theology of Romantic Love' is the first comprehensive presentation of the thought of one of the most gifted novelists and original theologians of the twentieth century. Drawing together the recurrent themes and proving insights scattered through his many books, Mrs. Shideler sets forth with clarity and understanding Williams' versatile use of imagery, his key ideas, his revaluation of basic Christian doctrines, and his approach to personal and social ethics. Readers will find in these pages a vivid new appreciation of the experience of love in the life of faith.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"Charles Williams is a major figure, and few authors could be more fortunate in the interpretive voice chosen to reintroduce them. This book is a significant piece of writing."
--Robert McAfee Brown, author of 'Speaking
of Christianity: Practical Compassion,
Social Justice, and Other Wonders'

". . . at once the ideal companion volume for Williams' own writings and also an admirable introduction to a Christian writer whose interpretation of the faith should be much more widely known than it is."
--'The Christian Century'

"This fresh study of his thought by Mary Shideler will not only cheer Williamsites, but should do a good deal to kindle a wider interest in this remarkable writer, who was the mentor of T. S. Eliot, C. S. Lewis, and Dorothy Sayers . . ."
--Douglas V. Steere, author of 'Prayer in
the Contemporary World'
