Meeting God in Books Meeting God in Books

The Fifth Fay and Alfred C. Grosse Seminar on Religion and the Literary Arts
Melanie Harris Assistant Professor of Religion and Ethics, Texas Christian University

our eyes are fixed on the page, your fingers ready to turn. Suddenly you notice that your heart is pounding and your spirit is about to take flight. The words on the page come alive to you as you meet God face to face. Have you ever had a religious experience while reading a book? Great writers want you to have this, and when it happens, great readers beg for more. This seminar shows you how to look for religious themes in literature and give you the skills to theologically reflect on excerpts from books including The Shack by William Paul Young, The Color Purple by Alice Walker, and Zora Neale Hurston’s Their Eyes Were Watching God.
