This book arose from the Gifford Lectures given by Rowan Williams in 2013. In it he reflects on the way we use language and explores how that can affect the possibilities of how we speak about God. He engages with thinkers in a variety of disciplines, from philosophers of religion to experts in the treatment of autism, and also investigates how the use of language in fiction and poetry adds depth to our appreciation through the use of fantasy, metaphor and paradox.
