Imagination and the Playfulness of God
The Theological Implications of Samuel Taylor Coleridge's Definition of the Human Imagination
Imprint: Pickwick Publications
"Here is a theologian to watch. Expounding Coleridge is never easy, but in treating this complex genius Stockitt brings a rare and engaging lucidity. And he draws out the theme of the 'playfulness' of God in a way that is both fascinating and beguiling, as well as crucial for theology today. A considerable achievement."
"As one who has long believed in the importance of Coleridge as a creative theologian, I am delighted that Robin Stockitt has produced such a significant exploration of how Coleridge's work on the imagination can lead us into an engagement with the play as a way of understanding the interplay of God's being as a communion of love. This is indeed imaginative theology-a work from which many will profit and which I am delighted to commend."
