'When Ward passionately grasps at the question of the importance of language in theology, it is quite clear that this is a book with a clear methodology ... all of the engaging correspondences and complicities the author identifies are, and perhaps will remain, relevant in modern theology.' Literature and Theology
"...the first disciplined and lucid account of Derrida's significance in the interpretation of Scripture and theology. This examination of 'postmodern' problems is written with sophistication and an ear for what theologians find accessible. Its reading of the question of analogy in the traditional theology of Karl Barth, and of its historical and conceptual relation to Derrida's 'economy of differance' is convincing and thought-provoking." Benjamin Hutchens, Times Literary Supplement
"Ward's tesis, summarized bery simply here, is highly nuanced. He shows an impressive command of 20th-century theology and philosophy. Those looking for informative interpretations of workds by Buber, Heidegger, Levinas and of course, Barth and Derrida will not be disappointed. Ward offers a compelling case for the continued conversation between postmodern thought and Christian theology." Christian Century
"This is an excellent piece of work and deserves much careful reading..." Mark A. McIntosh, Anglican Theological Review
"It is a brilliant and complex analysis of Barth's way of responding to the post-Kantian crisis of representation in the form of a theology of the Word of God." Religious Studies Review
