Credo 10, 1 (2020) on Theology through Fiction

The current issue of Credo is available, this one devoted to the topic of ‘The Truth Inside the Lie: Theology through Fiction’.

Here’s the blurb:

The world of fiction and the world of theology might as well be worlds apart. Rarely, if ever, do theologians write fiction, or even pay attention to the insights they might imbibe from a world make believe. That must change. For not only does fiction communicate truth, but truth becomes incarnate through characters with flesh and blood, people not all that different from us. Through the art of the story, beauty itself is embodied. In this issue of Credo Magazine, we move past the artificial divide to explore the innumerable ways fiction infuses our minds and hearts with stories of rebellion and redemption, stories that in some substantial way bring us closer to the master storyteller himself.

Individual articles, along with interviews and book reviews, are available to read from here.
