Marilynne Robinson on Faith, Science, and the Truth

There is no book arriving in 2012 that I am more excited to read than Marilynne Robinson’s When I Was a Child I Read Books.

This week, The Chronicle of Higher Education published an excerpt…

I keep reading it and re-reading it. It’s so powerful and substantial that it feels like a book in itself.

Read it a couple of times.

About Jeffrey Overstreet

Jeffrey Overstreet has two passions: writing fiction, and celebrating art — music, cinema, photography, literature — through writing and teaching. He is the author of a “memoir of dangerous moviegoing” — Through a Screen Darkly. And his four-novel fantasy series, The Auralia Thread, which begins with Auralia's Colors, was published by Random House. He speaks at universities and conferences around the world about understanding art through eyes of faith. He is earning his MFA in Creative Writing at Seattle Pacific University, where he has worked for 11 years as an editor, writer, and communications project manager. His work has been recognized in The New Yorker, TIME, The Seattle Times, IMAGE, Ravi Zacharias International — and Christianity Today, where he served as a film journalist for more than a decade. He recently began a weekly column called "Listening Closer" for Christ and Pop Culture.
