Missing: Biblical metanarrative in literature


First there is this:

Although there may still be some, as Flannery O’Connor describes them, “Christ-haunted” places in the South, the biblical metanarrative as an operating cultural storyline is almost nonexistent.

Do you want to read more? Follow this link.

In what works of literature, from the past or in the present, do you see Biblical metanarrative operating as a storyline? My favorite author of such literature is Flannery O'Connor, and I will be rereading her work and posting about it soon. However, in the meantime, I hope you can add to my reading list.

So, what do you say?

  3. That's a great article by Whelchel. It's funny that Vought was condemned for simply comparing Muslim and Christian faiths. The people condemning him don't seem to realize that they are exercising the same intolerance they supposedly decry in Vought.

    It is sad we as a culture no longer possess the rich history and culture Biblical knowledge provides.

    What we have now is an empty rootlessness based on nihilism.
