Fr Timothy Radcliffe OP is a well-known theologian and spiritual author who looks at the questions that many Christians ask in living out the faith. At the request of Pope Francis he led the three day preparatory retreat for participants in the Synod on Synodality in Rome, as well as delivering weekly spiritual reflections, last October.

He is the author of many books and articles in the popular field of practical Christianity, the most recent being Why Go To Church (2009), Alive in God (2019) and Questioning God (with Lukasz Popko, 2023).

He was ordained a priest in the Dominican Order (OP) in 1971, and subsequently was based at the west London Catholic Chaplaincy. He taught scripture at Oxford, and was elected provincial of the Order of Preachers in England in 1988. In 1992 he was elected master (Superior General) of the Dominican Order, holding that office up to 2001.
