Speaking in Parables offers one of the best treatments ever given to the importance for theology of narrative and story. A theology taking its cue from the parables finds that the genres most closely associated with it are the poem, the novel and the autobiography. These become the prime resources for the theologian who tries to show how insight occurs through language, how one comes to this moment of belief, and how one works it out in one's own life. The author's discussion of important works such as J. R. R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings, The Violent Bear it Away by Flannery O'Connor, the science fiction of C. S. Lewis and the fantasies of Charles Williams remains as fresh, vital and accessible as it seemed when her book was first published over twenty-five years ago.

About the Author:

Sallie McFague is Professor of Theology at Vanderbilt University.

Review:

"Everyone interested in theology will be stimulated by Sallie McFague's mediating theological position and the form of thinking and discourse she espouses. Those interested in the intercourse between theology and literature will be stimulated by the way she links the two and the perceptive way she handles her literary examples. Biblical scholars will undoubtedly note her primacy of the parables as the central corpus of the biblical records. Preachers of the church will be strengthened by the concern McFague has for the Christian community and the importance of the word through the words of the preachers. With this variety of concerns, Speaking in Parables will have a deservedly wide reading and, perhaps even more important, wide discussion."

Book Description Augsburg Fortress Publishing. Paperback. Condition: New. 196 pages. Dimensions: 8.2in. x 5.5in. x 0.6in.This text discusses the importance for theology of narrative and story. The central contention of the book is that, if Jesus parables are taken as models of theological reflection, there is a form there that unites language, belief and life. A theology taking its cues from parables finds that the genres most closely associated with it are the poem, the novel and the autobiography. These become the prime resources for the theologian who tries to show how insight occurs through language, how one comes to this moment of belief, and how one works it out in ones own life. The author discusses such important works as Alan Patons Cry the Beloved Country; J. R. R. Tolkiens The Lord of the Rings; The Violent Bear it Away by Flannery OConnor; the science fiction of C. S. Lewis; and the fantasies of Charles Williams. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Paperback. Seller Inventory # 9780800610975
