THE MICHAEL RAMSEY PRIZE
The 2013 plaque
The Award, which is sponsored by the Lambeth Trust and administered by SPCK, 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 winner will also receive a handmade mosaic plaque by local ceramic artist Dee Hardwicke (see illustration). 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.
Past winners have included, Atheist Delusions by David Bentley Hart, Jesus and the Eyewitnesses, by Richard Bauckham, What is the point of being a Christian? by Fr Timothy Radcliffe OP and Bishop Tom Wright's work The Resurrection of the Son of God (SPCK).
