Christianity and Literature

Truth and Story

In Gutenberg College's second series of classes on the intersections of Christianity and other lines of thought, we consider the place of literature in the life of a truth-seeking Christian. What should we make of the fact that the Bible is written largely in the form of a narrative? Can an understanding of literature make us better hearers and doers of the word? Are truth and fiction fundamentally opposed? Gutenberg College invites you to join us for a series of talks and discussions to delve into such questions.

JAN 9: Ron Julian, “The Voices of the Bible: Some Literary Aspects of Biblical Revelation”

JAN 16: Ryan Carroll, “Literary Art? The Bible as (hi)Story”

JAN 23: Gil Greco, “Becoming a Thousand Men: A Critique of Archetypal Interpretation”

JAN 30: Tim McIntosh, “The Hard Work of Having a Hero: Models in Christian Literature”

FEB 13: NO CLASS

FEB 20: Cindy Swanson, “Fantastical Worlds and How to Mine Them”

FEB 27: Shaynor Newsome, “Performing the Text: Ministry as Invitation into God’s Story of the World”
