Literature and Shalom: Teaching Freshman Students to Read
Bowen, Deborah C.
Journal of Education & Christian Belief, v12 n1 p7-19 2008
Wolterstorff's argument for art as a form of action that enables us to anticipate shalom and Ricoeur's concept of the narrative intelligence developed in the reader of stories are tested out in a freshman non-specialist English class where the interpretation of literature, covered by the power of prayer, fosters both intellectual and moral virtues. A bibliography is included. (Contains 1 note.)
