Faith and the Literary Imagination: The Educational Challenge
Williams, Kevin
Journal of Beliefs & Values, v34 n2 p245-255 2013
Divided into four parts, the article explores the relationship between literature and faith. The first part examines the connection between literature and the pursuit of truth and the second shows that literature can offer a challenging encounter with different beliefs. Part three examines some examples of the imagination at work in illuminating faith and the final section considers the educational challenge for teachers in enabling students to respond in an informed and sensitive way to literary encounters with faith.
