I’m just back from two weeks on the road, so my apologies for this week’s abbreviated blog.
For one of the weeks I was away, I attended the inaugural Buechnerfest, hosted by the Buechner Institute at King College. It was a lovely time of good books and good conversation. And as always when one is around book-loving folks, I came away with appreciation for old favorites as well as recommendations for books to add to my to-read list.
The New York Times has, of late, been having its own little mini-fest surrounding faith and fiction, encouraging its writers and readers to contribute suggestions of “favorite religious fiction.” The responses include a good many usual suspects, but it is worth checking out nevertheless.
So…what are you reading this summer? What are you recommending that we read or re-read again? What, in your opinion, are the best texts that address faith in fiction? Share your responses in the comments, if you’d like.
