    One thought on “The Truth Seeking Heart: Austin Farrer And His Writings (Canterbury Studies In Spiritual Theology)”

    1. Austin Farrer is fabulous - his mixture of godliness, trustworthy intelligence (ie you trust their approach even if you disagree with their conclusions) and sanity is surprisingly rare. The book is a collection of essays, gobbets and sermons that make a good stab at showing his scope. And he's Anglican, and he's funny - what's not to like.
