The Ark of Speech investigates the interplay of speech and silence in the dialogue between God and human beings, and human beings and the world. Ranging from the Old Testament and its depiction of God's creative word to the New Testament and its focus on the life and words of Jesus as the Word of the Father, the book shows how important it is for the believer to listen to God and to others in silence and devotion.


'Jean-Louis Chrétien's The Ark of Speech is an important new work of philosophical theology, and it is very good to have it available in English.' - Hugh Rayment-Pickard, Church Times
