Faulkner befriended real people. Unpretentious people. People honest about their life and living. He chose to surround himself with these who populated his stories and actually lived in his intensely human fiction, rather than those who simply talked about the South, or wrote about it. He often spent time with people who simply talked or wrote about Christianity. He'd rather spend time with people who actually lived it. That's what this book is about--actually living Christianity. Being authentic Christians.
