Flannery O'Connor once wrote that "to the hard of hearing you shout, and for the almost-blind you draw large and startling figures." Some of the twenty-one well-known writers included in this book prefer to "shout," as O'Connor did, while others offer what Doris Betts calls "whispering hope." "Shouts and Whispers" contains a fascinating array of reflections on topics surrounding the often-perilous intersection of writing and faith. The authors all agree that literature can help us to be more faithful, yet they approach the subject in ways as diverse as their biographies. Some, like Katherine Paterson and Frederick Buechner, propose models of how literature and belief can fruitfully intersect. Several authors offer insightful metaphors for the experience of doing faith-filled writing, while others speak of writing as finding hope in the midst of brokenness. Finally, in essays by Madeleine L'Engle, Thomas Lynch, and others, readers are encouraged to make the connection between writing and embodiment, translating words into actions.While the essays, addresses, and interviews in "Shouts and Whispers" are by no means the final word, they will provoke rich and nuanced reflection on the dynamic relationship between faith and writing.Interviews with: Joy Kogawa Anne Lamott Kathleen Norris Paul SchraderEssays by Doris Betts Frederick Buechner Will Campbell Betty Smartt Carter Elizabeth Dewberry David James Duncan Ron Hansen Silas House Jan Karon Madeleine L'Engle Bret Lott Thomas Lynch Katherine Paterson James Calvin Schaap Luci Shaw Barbara Brown Taylor Walter Wangerin Jr.

Literary culture has long been antagonistic to faith. For writers who have faith commitments of one degree or another, they often wonder how to reconcile the two worlds to which they are committed. In this engaging volume, twenty-one writers examine the often perilous intersections of literature and belief. They use approaches that are as diverse as their biographies, from Barbara Brown Taylor's calling to behold, to David James Duncan's exploration of the wreckage in the grass around this particular intersection. The volume also contributions from Doris Betts, Frederick Buechner, Will Campbell, Betty Smartt Carter, Elizabeth Dewberry, David James Duncan, Ron Hansen, Silas House, Jan Karon, Joy Kogawa, Anne Lamott, Madeline L'Engle, Brett Lott, Thomas Lynch, Kathleen Norris Katherine Paterson, James Schaap, Paul Schrader, Luci Shaw, Barbara Brown Taylor, Walter Wangerin Jr.Taken together, this wonderful collection will encourage and inspire anyone seeking to work out the connection between faith-full writing and writing faithfully.
