Ben Quash: Abiding

Ben Quash


The Archbishop of Canterbury’s Lent Book 2013

ISBN: 9781 4411 5111 7

Bloomsbury, 2012, 249pp, £10.00

Lent 2013 is history.  Ben Quash’s book abides. Its message – reminiscent of Vanstone’s The Stature of Waiting, is a constant, timeless.

This is a book – and yet, it is not a book. An attempt to read it as such leaves the reader with an attack of acute mental indigestion. It calls for a slow perusal, certainly not more than a chapter at a time, if not a page.

From the back cover: ‘Drawing on the wisdom and imagery of modern fiction, film and art, as well as key figures in the classical Christian tradition, Quash skilfully and creatively explores the implications that ‘abiding’ has for our bodies and minds, our relationships and communities, and our spiritual lives.’
