In this book, Heather Walton explores the significance of women poststructuralist theorists for feminist reading practices in theology. She interrogates the crucial role that literature has played in the development of feminist theology and breaks new ground in linking the study of literary texts and theory to creative writing. This raises important epistemological questions concerning the use of the imagination in theological thinking and introduces 'reflexive theology' as a discipline and practice.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"An inspired title for an inspiring book ... each [chapter] is argued in a passionate yet nuanced manner." - Theology
Mention -Theology Digest, Summer 2006
'Walton is well placed to comment on the current positioning of women scholars and women's writing in this growing field of academic scholarship ... the book conveys something of the richness of women's scholarship and writing ... the book is also a provocative call to remake gender politics amid all the remaking of the twenty-first century world' Theological Book Review, Volume 20, No 2, 2008
Mention --Theology Digest, Summer 2006
Mention Theology Digest, Summer 2006
'Imagining Theology mark[s] an important intervention in the field of literature and theology by challenging both male scholars and religious feminists to consider the work of feminist poststructuralists. [This] book will be useful to scholars in both disciplines, as well as those who occupy the margins between them.' Elizabeth Anderson, University of Glasgow, The Kelvingrove Review
"Walton's essays raise important issues such as the relation between aesthetics and suffering in the divine economy...Imagining Theology has some excellent and provocative essays...definitely college library worthy..." -Lynn M. Browne, Catholic Library World, March 2009
"Walton's book provides the opportunity for women in different social locations and various forms of ministry to explore the interplay of theology and contemporary literature." Interpretation, April 2009--Sanford Lakoff "Interpretation "
"Heather Walton makes a strong case for more fully incorporating fiction, published diaries, journals, poetry, science fiction, and feminist philosophy by women into the discussion of theology...Walton is the Director of the Centre for Literature, Theology, and the Arts at Glasglow University, and her particular knowledge is reflected in the choice of topics in this book....Walton's book provides the opportunity for women in different social locations and various forms of ministry to explore the interplay of theology and contemporary literature." - Interpretation--Sanford Lakoff "Interpretation "
