Dr Jane Williams

Jane was born in India, one of five sisters, and read Theology at Cambridge University before going on to work in theological publishing and education. She is a tutor in Theology at St Mellitus College, London and Chelmsford, and a Visiting Lecturer at King’s College, London. She also works as a Lecturer at the St Paul’s Theological Centre, and for Redemptorist Publications. She is the author of several books including Approaching Easter, Approaching Christmas, Angel and mst recently Faces of Christ. Jane has been married to Rowan since 1981 and together they have a son and a daughter. Jane Williams said many Christians felt uncomfortable talking about their beliefs and feared that doing so was ‘not politically correct’. But ‘lazy’ and ‘scornful’ attitudes towards people of faith in Britain must be challenged, she said, urging Christians to be more prepared to ‘argue our corner’.
