REL 36 Sin and Story
This course explores through creative discussion, close reading, and texts that parallel theological perspective with literary exemplification, the fruitful interplay between religion and fiction. Students are encouraged to draw on other—and not necessarily Christian—religious traditions, if they so choose. The format is that of a book club. Lectures will provide significant biographical, contextual, and stylistic information. The professor will also assist students in elucidating the theological elements informing the literary works. The students will be responsible for coming to class with questions, comments, and quotations to support their assertions. Open to all classes.
