In this book Heather Walton explores the significance of women poststructuralist theorists for feminist reading practices in theology. She interrogates the crucial role that literature has played in the development of feminist theology and breaks new ground in linking the study of literary texts and theory to creative writing. This raises important epistemological questions concerning the use of the imagination in theological thinking and introduces 'reflexive theology' as a discipline and practice.
