What is your favorite piece of Christian literature aside from the Bible?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on June 30, 2007
“‘Blue Like Jazz,’ by Donald Miller. He goes through the different aspects of Christian faith. He shies away from traditional conservative Christianity, which is kind of the appeal to it.”
“‘Till We Have Faces,’ by C.S. Lewis. He takes a story from Greek mythology and interweaves his grief over his wife’s death. I think it’s really creative, enthralling, deeply emotional and well written.”
“‘As Kingfishers Catch Fire, Dragonflies Draw Flame,’ by Gerard Manley Hopkins. He wrote a lot about nature and God, and the connection between the two.”
“Probably ‘Truth in Religious Belief,’ by Brendan Sweetman. It’s about a discussion among experts from various religious backgrounds on the big issues in religion.”
