'The wisdom tradition in theology has made a comeback, and Ford's book is delightful to read, resplendent with wisdom ancient and new.' The Christian Century
'...deeply original book ... this is theology at its most hospitable ... this book is the fruit of many rich conversations. The tone of generous inclusive dialogue is maintained throughout. It is an invitation to a praxis.' Church Times
'... this book seems to be both profoundly original and generative. More than simply a study of the Wisdom theme in Christian theology, it is actually a tremendously important essay in the theological method, a proposal for what it might mean for church to 'do theology'. ... Let's hope that it's picked up by all the various courses, across the denominations, which train clergy, and from there makes its way into life of the Church.' Theology
'... by his own admission, Ford is not attempting to be theologically comprehensive as much as to encourage a wide and encompassing search of 'the heights and depths of our fragile existence, always learning and discerning, and never past being surprised.' Christian Wisdom will no doubt inspire many others to go and do likewise ...' Anvil
'This book is deeply theological, profoundly spiritual, and imaginatively engaged with some important issues that confront thinking people in our time.' Journal of Reformed Theology
