Graham Greene and the Question of Faith
Graham Greene and The Question of Faith is an interesting read. Elizabeth AyukAko examines Greene's major novels in light of existing theoretical paradigms on the question of faith. She builds on these arguments with clarity and insight to x-ray the anxiety and anguish that characterize Greene's protagonists. She considers the complex relationship between sin and human nature as a fundamental source of humankind's distrust of any 'bethlehemic' messianism. She conceptualizes the issue of faith within the perspective of the modern skeptical temperament, leaving the reader with the belief in a rather humane but mistrustful metaphysical justice.
