About the Author

Francesca Aran Murphy is Reader in Systematic Theology, University of Aberdeen.


Learned, complex, intellectually demanding - still, it is a thoroughly good read, and therefore highly to be recommended...the good nature of the book, its humanity and humour suggest that what ought to follow is not a fight designed to knock the opponent senseless, but reather a revisiting of basic principles, testing one's own ground, and a good debate from which we should emerge the best of friends, even, and perhaps especially, when we agree to disagree. I hope that all my postgraduate students will read this book, to sharpen thier wits and recover a little of the practice of that civilized, thoughtful and informed debate in theology which can put to good use the good film, play or novel in its genuine concern for doctrines, beliefs and methods. David Jasper, Literature and Theology
