'...the uninitiated enquirer will find here lucid and compelling introductions... the book is invaluable. But the initiated specialist will also find much of value, for the implications for theology are wide and far reaching.' - Gavin Hyman, New Blackfriars 'Graham his short, extremely useful and perceptive Theology and Contemporary Critical Theory offers a generous and appreciative reading of fashionable theorists - above all, of Derrida - and the challenge and opportunity they offer to theology.' - Gerard Loughlin, Times Literary Supplement
