Item Description...
"Theology After Reading" explores how recent novelists, alongside certain post-War Christian theologians, appear to be challenging, inverting, reinterpreting, and sometimes even affirming, the basic questions and answers of more traditional theologians. Focusing on five novels, Darren Middleton's book illustrates how literary art provokes theological reflection. Examining Graham Greene's "The End of the Affair," Toni Morrison's "Sula," Nikos Kazantzakis's "The Last Temptation of Christ," Earl Lovelace's "The Wine of Astonishment," and Paul Thigpen's "My Visit to Hell," Middleton deftly illuminates the expression of both mainstream and progressive Christian doctrines as themes in these selected works of fiction, ultimately reaffirming the graced search for meaning in the mindful Christian life.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
The future of the field  Feb 18, 2009
Middleton (already known as a leader in religion and literature studies) here pushes the field far into the future. Creative readings and re-readings, nicely written, and a great array of chosen texts (one of the most global studies ever published) make this a standard for religious studies of literature.
