John Pattison, at “Slow Church,” posted an interview he conducted with Miroslav Volf for a future article in Neue magazine. In it, Volf says:

“The book has been a long time in gestation. Indeed, the individual pieces, though written with the unity in mind, have been written across a relatively wide swath of time – some 15 years if I recall correctly, and one even older than that. I have been thinking about these issues for quite some time. A Public Faith was the result. ”
