"This lively and intellectually rich book offers a serious and affectionate tribute to perhaps the most important Christian theologian of our time: David Ford. With careful academic attention to his teaching and writing, it allows the reader to understand the luminous theory and praxis of a living theologian, showing how a life of intellectual and religious reasoning about the call of Scripture can truly change the world."
--Laurie Zoloth, Northwestern University
"A rich and diverse collection of essays, this book is a fine testimony to the capacity of David Ford as a Christian theologian. It not only connects church and the university, worship and theology, the academic study of religion and the Abrahamic faiths, but it also encourages others to share that vocation and fulfill its vision."
--David Fergusson, University of Edinburgh
"This sparkling set of essays is a fitting testimony to the limitless insight that emerges from the unique kind of conversation David has embodied for us and fostered among so many of his friends. The gratitude the reader will feel toward the authors will properly turn into gratitude for the man himself, and for the God whose 'face' David has been inviting us to behold for so many years."
--Jeremy Begbie, Duke University
"David Ford's creativity, passion, inclusiveness, and generosity of spirit have enabled him to engage with a broad perspective in the landscape of faith; through encouragement, vision, and joy, he has mentored students and co-created with colleagues, modeling a collegial way of praising God. This excellent volume reflects those discussions leading them to a new level of maturity. I commend it wholeheartedly."
Iain R. Torrance, Princeton Theological Seminary
"This is a sparkling collection--a fitting tribute to David's great capacity to encourage and support a new generation of exciting thinkers in the magnificent new Divinity School for which he has been the chief inspiration."
George Newlands, President of Society for the Study of Theology.
