Description

A literary approach to the Word of the Lord, this collection of short fiction deals with--in one way or another--the overarching concept of redemption. This anthology demonstrates how God appears again and again in the lives of priest, pastors, nuns, and Pentecostals. However He appears, He appears again and again in the lives of priests, nuns, and Pentecostals in these great stories of a kind never collected before--those by Jacques Ferron, Morley Callaghan, Hugh Hood, Gloria Sawai, Mavis Gallant, Leon Rooke, Barry Callaghan, Sean Virgo, Kenneth J. Harvey, Claire De, Marie-Claire Blais, Hugh Garner, and more. Not only is the religious material presented in an approachable manner, but it also fosters reflection and discussion and is perfect for courses on short fiction or general symposium teaching material.
