Timothy Radcliffe OP Wins Leading Theology Prize

LONDON - 18 May 2007 -- Dominican Father Timothy Radcliffe is this year's winner of the £15,000 Michael Ramsey Prize for Theological Writing for his book: What is the Point of Being a Christian? published by Continuum.

Fr Timothy, had flown in from the 800th Anniversary Dominican Symposium at Adrian, MI, to attend the award ceremony on Tuesday at the Christian Resources Exhibition in Esher.

He said: "On Kentucky Derby Day recently, Dominican came 11th ­ so it's good that a Dominican should be first past the post at Sandown Park. I am especially pleased to win an award linked to the name of Michael Ramsey. I never knew him but he had an enormous influence on young Christians of my generation."

The Award, which is sponsored by the Lambeth Fund, was inaugurated by Archbishop of Canterbury Dr Rowan Williams to encourage the most promising contemporary theological writing and to identify it for a wider Christian readership.

The biennial prize commemorates Dr Ramsey, who was Archbishop of Canterbury 1961-1974, and his commitment to increasing the breadth of theological understanding of people in general.

The Prize was inaugurated in 2003, and the first award was made in 2005. Five books were shortlisted from the entries received.

Nominations are made by invited Anglican Primates worldwide, by leaders of Christian church bodies in the UK, Anglican Diocesan Bishops and by principals of theological colleges. Books may not be nominated by publishers or members of the public.
