Literature And Theology$15.99Add to cart
Literature and Theology is a volume in the Horizons in Theology series. It offers a highly engaging essay on the major concerns and questions regarding literature (fiction and poetry) as it intersects with theology-past and present. Ralph Wood is a senior scholar in this field, one who is able to address in a clear and concise style the scope and contours of this question as it relates to theological inquiry and application. He opens the broader lines of discussion in suggestive, evocative, and programmatic ways by focusing on representative and core literary texts. Horizons in Theology serve as supplements and secondary required texts in colleges and seminaries, as well as the interested nonspecialist reader.
