The Power of the Word Project is an international academic network that exists to promote dialogue on topics of common interest among creative writers and scholars and students in different disciplines in the humanities. The book series aims to extend the work of the Power of the Word Project by continuing to stimulate and encourage interdisciplinary conversations which explore boundaries, harmonies and hostilities, convergences and divergences between imaginative literature on the one hand and philosophy, theology, biblical studies, ethics and traditions of religious faith, experience and practice on the other. The series is international and intercultural in its range of authors and topics. It includes edited volumes and single-author monographs and welcomes discussion of theoretical issues alongside studies of particular writers and their work.
