About the Author

Graham Ward is Regius Professor of Divinity in the University of Oxford and a Canon of Christ Church, Oxford. A former editor of the journal Literature and Theology, he has written numerous books which explore varied topics in religion, theology, literature and literary and cultural theory. These include Barth, Derrida and the Language of Theology (1995), Theology and Contemporary Critical Theory (1996), Radical Orthodoxy: A New Theology (edited with John Milbank and Catherine Pickstock, 1998), The Certeau Reader (2000), True Religion (2002), Cultural Transformation and Religious Practice (2010) and Unbelievable: Why We Believe and Why We Don't (I.B.Tauris, 2014).


`Our contemporary world has seen a great rift between so-called religious fundamentalists and an enlightened liberalism which wishes religion would simply go away. Both sides are woefully failing in that deep human quality: the imagination. Graham Ward's new book Unimaginable is a profound and richly enjoyable journey towards the ground of our being. I know this is a text which I shall often revisit.' - A N Wilson, `Unimaginable is a book of wonders. `It is an interdisciplinary excavation of imagination, its "palaeontology, archaeology, biology, physiology, psychology... and how it engages with the world". Yet it is far more than this: it is an exploration of language and art, of life itself, through enchanted prose and a weaving together of ideas, layers and cultures - "the stark, ungraspable beauty; the raw, defenceless horror," - that makes for compulsive reading. Unimaginable is a unique and powerful contribution to our understanding. Not to be missed.' - Maggie Ross, author of Silence: A User's Guide
