      Christianity and Literature: Truth and Story

      In Gutenberg College's second series of classes on the intersections of Christianity and other lines of thought, we consider the place of literature in the life of a truth-seeking Christian. What should we make of the fact that the Bible is written largely in the form of a narrative? Can an understanding of literature make us better hearers and doers of the word? Are truth and fiction fundamentally opposed? Gutenberg College invites you to join us for a series of talks and discussions to delve into such questions.
