  • Seeing the Beatific Vision in "Good Friday: Made as I was Riding Westward
           that Day'' through John Donne's Sermons
    • Abstract: Throughout his many expostulations in the sermons on the scriptural theme of seeing God's face, Donne maintains that, while authentically seeing God's face is reserved only for the glorified saints in the afterlife (and even then God cannot "essentially'' be seen), one should attempt to "see'' or witness God's face, which is manifested through his Word, because such a vision is an important soteriological step in advancing in the ordo salutis. Never one simply to duplicate in his poetic imaginings the pure, if occasional, theology of the sermons, Donne suggestively strays from the sermonic emphasis on Christians' roles as seers of God's face in his most extended and provocative meditative poem on the theme, "Good ...

  • Science Fiction and The Abolition of Man: Finding C. S. Lewis in Sci-Fi
           Film and Television ed. by Mark J. Boone and Kevin C. Neece (review)
    • Abstract: This anthology's brilliance is that it continues a project begun by C. S. Lewis himself. The Abolition of Man was written to explain the dangers of Modernity's trend toward abandoning a belief in objective moral values, what philosophers often call Natural Law and Lewis referred to—in order to emphasize its cultural universality—as the Tao. Among the dangers of surrendering objective values for subjective preferences, Lewis wrote, is the potential for advances in technology which would make it possible for some people to develop the ability to take control of and manipulate mankind toward their own ends. Science Fiction and The Abolition of Man is a continuation of Lewis's project because Lewis himself "sequeled'' ... Read More

  • Getting to Gardisky Lake by Paul J. Willis (review)
    • Abstract: In the opening poem of his new book, Paul Willis establishes his role as a sort of poetic umpire. The poet recalls a picnic he attended as a boy with his father's academic coworkers and their families. Too shy to join in the softball game after lunch, he watched as the department chair stepped behind the plate to act the part of umpire:A burly graduate student smacks a long onepast center field. "Foul ball!'' cries the chair.Someone's fifth-grade daughter taps an awkwarddribble into the weeds. "Fair!'' he cries.I hear the echoes even now,the guffaws of protest, the richastonishment of that girlghosting her way around the bases.I could have played, I thought then.There is room for me in this world. ...

  • Theology and Science Fiction by James M. McGrath (review)
    • Abstract: This new volume comes from the Cascade Companions series, which has as its general aim to make accessible the body of Christian theology to the broader reader. James F. McGrath has already established himself as a leading critic in a field even now only receiving patchy attention. His 2011 volume Religion and Science Fiction has become a classic and directly counters the grand narrative of technological progress which used to be taken as underpinning science fiction. As its title suggests, Theology and Science Fiction is an exercise in comparison between two fields which have been quite distinct. McGrath's agenda is simply to invite the reader to consider possible connections between the two domains and each ... Read More

  • The Baptized Muse: Early Christian Poetry as Cultural Authority by Karla
           Pollman (review)
    • Abstract: One of the most encouraging developments in literary criticism over the last half century has been the resurgence of interest in early Christian poetry. Early Christian poetry, also sometimes called Patristic poetry, is a term covering a broad range of poetic endeavors by Christians: from the earliest Latin, Greek, and Syriac hymns from the second and third centuries to the Byzantine and Carolingian verse of the seventh century. The Christian poetry of the fourth and fifth centuries has gained the most attention in the last few decades, especially the Syriac poems of Ephrem the Syrian (~306–373), the Greek poems of Gregory Nazianzus (~330–390), and the Latin poems of Prudentius (~348–413).

  • Milosz: A Biography by Andrzej Franaszek (review)
    • Abstract: The first comprehensive biography of one of the previous century's greatest poets, 1980 Nobel Prize Laureate Czeslaw Milosz, serves also as a milestone in European and Slavic cultural studies. Shorter than its 2011 Polish version, this edition is a remarkable feat—adding some new materials, and yet concisely covering the complex drama of this singular artist and chronicler of his age.Fortunately for the biographer Franaszek, of Krakow's Pedagogical University, Milosz's life (1911–2004) yielded a vast array of sources—many of them autobiographical. For example, with acumen Franaszek employs the Bildungsroman, The Issa Valley (1981), largely based upon Milosz's childhood in Wilno, Poland—now Vilnius, Lithuania; the ... Read More

  • In the Beauty of Holiness: Art and the Bible in Western Culture by David
           Lyle Jeffrey (review)
    • Abstract: During my final year as a doctoral student at Baylor University, I had the opportunity to audit David Lyle Jeffrey's "Philosophy of Art'' course. Like this book, the class was at once rigorously intellectual and deeply worshipful. Jeffrey has been teaching such a course for 20 years, and he's been publishing on theology and the visual arts for more than 45 years, so even though his formal training is in literary scholarship, this book has been percolating in his thoughts and affections for decades. And it stands as a remarkable witness to the way that scholarship can be a form of worship. If Jeffrey shows that beauty and holiness have historically had an uneasy relationship, and yet that beauty can indeed serve ... Read More

  • You Are What You Love: The Spiritual Power of Habit by James K. A. Smith,
           and: The Phenomenology of Love and Reading by Cassandra Falke (review)
    • Abstract: Toward the end of Shakespeare's play Henry IV, Part 2, Prince Hal ("Harry'') sits by the bed of his ailing father, King Henry, whose crown lies beside him on the pillow. Seeing an unmoving feather upon his father's lips, Prince Hal assumes that his father has died. After briefly grieving, Prince Hal takes the crown, places it on his own head, and leaves the room. When the king stirs and calls noblemen to his room, he asks about his son: "Is he so hasty that he doth suppose/My sleep my death''' (4.5.60–61). Ashamedly reentering the room, Prince Hal says, "I never thought to hear you speak again'' (4.5.91), and King Henry responds, "Thy wish was father, Harry, to that thought'' (4.5.92).The relationship between ...

  • Catholic Literature and Film: Incarnational Love and Suffering by Nancy
           Enright (review)
    • Abstract: If employed skillfully, an academic seminar can be a splendid pedagogical tool. A lecture-based course has its place as well. It provides clear structure, especially for introductory courses, but it also allows a kind of intellectual passivity. Students take notes, ask questions, read assigned collateral texts, and put together certain fundamental concepts for more advanced work. At the end, students prepare for a test to demonstrate how accurately they have mastered "the material.'' It's not a very engaging process, but in most fields a necessary first step. Few professors of physics, for example, would want beginners to compose an essay or engage in a conversation about "My Perspectives on Quantum Mechanics.''A ... Read More

  • The Brokenness of Caesar's Things: On the Unfinished Religious Novel by
           Zelda Fitzgerald
    • Abstract: Zelda Fitzgerald is most famous for her Jazz Age self: the blithe "It'' girl of the 1920s who danced on table-tops and went to too many parties. Married tumultuously to F. Scott Fitzgerald, she is credited as both the muse and saboteur of his writing, inspiring works like The Great Gatsby yet also pushing him, by some accounts, toward alcoholic self-destruction. Popular novels such as Z: A Novel of Zelda Fitzgerald (2013), and the Amazon.com television series that it inspired, show the enduring fascination with this Zelda.1 What is less well known, and much less celebrated, is that Fitzgerald became devoutly religious during the 1930s. She prayed and read the Bible, sometimes for hours. She attended an Episcopal ... Read More

  • Saint Perpetua across the Middle Ages: Mother, Gladiator, Saint by
           Margaret Cotter-Lynch (review)
    • Abstract: In Martyrdom: A Guide for the Perplexed (2011), Paul Middleton claims that martyrs do not exist per se, but are instead "made'' through narratives that provide later readers with an "interpretative framework'' for making sense of a memorable death (17). For Middleton, the story precedes the category of the martyr, whose status is dependent upon the author's memorialization to shape how later generations remember the event. Equally important, such narratives are discursive constructions written through various ideological lenses rather than transparent descriptions of an objective event. They occupy contested social space and are susceptible to the forces of other memory-making activities within different ... Read More

  • Shades of Bliss: Imagining Heaven in Wallace Stevens and Richard Wilbur
    • Abstract: There have been times when I think we do not desire heaven but more often I find myself wondering whether, in our heart of hearts, we have ever desired anything else.1God is indeed the light of human souls. In his light we see light … Yet it is true that on earth we do not see face to face; we walk by faith; we see in a mirror dimly. We come to the knowledge of God only by contemplating God's revelation in nature and Scripture … On earth we cannot obtain a direct, immediate knowledge of God and his thoughts but only a mediate knowledge "through and in a mirror."2Near the end of "A Baroque Wall-Fountain in the Villa Sciarra" (hereafter "Fountain") Richard Wilbur guesses that Saint Francis of Assisi "might have seen" ...

  • "The sacred idiom shorn of its referents": An Apophatic Reading of The
           Road
    • Abstract: Walker Percy asserts in "Why I Live Where I Do" that the reason he chose to live in Covington, Louisiana, across the lake from New Orleans, is not that "it is a pleasant place but rather that it is a pleasant nonplace" (3). Such a nonplace, he suggests, allows him to explore and critique beliefs and institutions without being absorbed into a place with a strong history, such as New Orleans. Cormac McCarthy's The Road pushes this idea of existing in a nonplace much further, since the post-apocalyptic novel follows a father and son's journey as they try to survive in a devastated landscape. In a world in which the boy's mother has committed suicide rather than attempt to escape the roving bands of cannibals, the ... Read More

  • Sanctifying Rites in Milton's A Masque Presented at Ludlow Castle, 1634
    • Abstract: Reading Stanley Fish's chapters on Comus in How Milton Works is a hermeneutical challenge not unlike reading Milton himself.1 Fish's picture of the Lady is the crux of his approach, and it is a picture whose edges seem to shift depending on the reader's stance. This may be intentional, a portrayal of the "double perspective" which for Fish is the poem's basic narrative technique: "The form of these questions is 'either-or,' but the answer in every case is 'both-and': the earth is both a pinfold and a gem, depending on whether you are tied to it by 'low-thoughted care' or live, at least in sprit, in 'Regions mild of calm and serene Air' (6, 4)."2 As such, misreading Fish may be identical to misreading Milton.3 So ...

  • When Did Wendell Berry Start Talking Like a Christian'
    • Abstract: In 1979, or thereabouts.1 Granted, this answer simplifies a considerably more complicated story. But I begin with this date to foreground my claim that Berry's use of Christian language does indeed shift. Though Berry's Christian theology has received much attention, most readers assume that its presence, conflicted though it may be, remains relatively consistent throughout his writings. This, however, is not the case, and focusing on when Berry began talking like a Christian sheds light on why Berry thinks Christian language is necessary.It is certainly true that readers who survey all of Berry's writings will find his use of theological terms fraught with tension, and these tensions can make it difficult to ...

  • Authorial Atonement in Ian McEwan's Atonement and Sweet Tooth
    • Abstract: Ian's McEwan's 2001 novel Atonement ends with a question: "how can a novelist achieve atonement when, with her absolute power of deciding outcomes, she is also God'"1 And it concludes, in response to this question, that "There is no one, no entity or higher form that she can appeal to, or be reconciled with, or that can forgive her. There is nothing outside her. In her imagination she has set the limits and the terms. No atonement for God, or novelists, even if they are atheists. It was an impossible task, and that was precisely the point. The attempt was all."2 The question is posed, as is the answer, by the novel's fictive author, Briony Tallis, regarding her own failed attempts, within and through the novel ... Read More

  • Interpreting Conversion: Hermeneutic Training in François Mauriac's
           Le Noeud de vipères
    • Abstract: François Mauriac has been known for decades as one of the great Catholic authors of twentieth-century French literature. A figure whose faith is as well known as his fiction, Mauriac's life and works have elicited scholarship focusing either on the Catholic thematics of his novels or the historical and biographical content of his nonfiction. What tends to be forgotten, however, is that Mauriac's place in the canon of Catholic literature has not always been assured. Indeed, Mauriac never accepted the term, "Catholic literature," and the mixed contemporary reception of his novels elucidates how precarious his reputation once was. In the conservative literary milieux of the 1920s when critics such as l'abbé Bethléem ... Read More
