Dr. Graham Ward is Professor of Contextual Theology and Ethics at The University of Manchester, and head of School of Arts, Histories and Cultures. Professor Ward’s current research encompasses Christian social ethics, political theory and cultural hermeneutics and he is the co-director of the Centre for Religion and Political Culture.

Earlier investigations into the theology of language (in Karl Barth, for example, or Jacques Derrida) gave way to concerns with the relationship between rhetoric and belief. Of late, Professor Ward has turned his critical eye toward the question of what makes a belief believable? This has led to develop an analysis of the ways in which theology represents its thinking and the wider cultural context within which that representation takes place. Publications include Cities of God (Routledge, 2000), True Religion (Blackwell, 2002), Christ and Culture (Blackwell, 2005), Political Discipleship (Baker Press, 2006) and Religion and Political Thought co-edited with Dr. Michael Hoelzl (Continuum, 2006).
