Title

Fiction is Truth: Novels as a Source for (Paradoxical) Theology

Description

Ward Lecture by Carol Lakey Hess, October 22, 2009. Digital audio recording (mp3). Duration: 1 hour.
"The art of fiction tells truth because it is the truth of life that goes into making good fiction: love, hate, fear, courage, delight, sorrow, betrayal, loyalty, confusion, choice, circumstance, luck, injustice. These essential qualities, says the author, are also the qualities of sound theology, with a sense of time and place; and raising relevant questions without offering absolute answers." -- from the abstract of the author's similarly titled periodical article.
