Description

The intersections between faith and writing can be dangerous and lonely. Writers often connect with their readers or with their faith community, but not always with both. In "Shouts and Whispers", twenty-one well-known authors offer a fascinating array of reflections on topics surrounding the often-perilous intersection of literature and belief. They use approaches that are as diverse as their biographies, from Bret Lott's notes on reclaiming literary fiction to David James Duncan's exploration of the collisions between faith and writing. While the essays, addresses, and interviews in "Shouts and Whispers" are by no means the final word on this topic, they will provoke and encourage reflection on the dynamic relationship between faith and art.
