What I find most powerful about Rowan Williams' writing is my constant sense that there is someone there, really there, behind the theology, that he is baring his soul to you in the process of writing.I found this text to be a brilliant examination of the empty tomb on Easter morning and how crucial it is that Easter turn us upside down and reshape the terms we have come to understand our reality. The kind of engagement he describes is one that asserts that we, as Christians, and as individuals, all have a particular past, that God engages with on a personal level.Easter does not wipe away distinctions or return to us a sanitized memory of the horror of Good Friday.Williams boldly states, "Easter means coming to the memory of Jesus, looking for consolation, and finding a memory that hurts and judges, that sets distance...between me and my hope, my savior." (pg 74).Williams draws out the tensions and disorienting nature of Easter and explains why that is necessary to our understanding of Eucharist, community, and the renewal of humanity by terms we do not fully understand.
