The Evelyn Underhill Lecture
in Christian Spirituality: Timothy Radcliffe, OP

Loading the player ...

What kind of spirituality can help Christians, particularly Catholics, to reach beyond sectarianism and yet be well identified as something more than just “one of the crowd”? As Catholics emerge from the ghetto—now called “life-style enclaves”—how can they avoid assimilation and maintain a distinctive religious identity? These and other questions are explored in the annual Evelyn Underhill Lecture in Christian Spirituality.

Timothy Radcliffe, OP, is a Dominican friar of the English Province, and was a Master of the Order of Preachers from 1992-2001, the only member of the English Province to have held that office since the order’s founding in 1216. He was the 2007 winner of The Michael Ramsey Prize for theological writing for his book What Is the Point of Being A Christian?(Burns and Oates, 2006).
