Pressestimmen

The Gift of Story addresses a vital theme--that of Hope--in contemporary fiction, film, and philosophy, focusing on the Christian tradition as a response to the "postmodern" climate of fragmented hopes and fears at the turn of the twenty-first century. The book's essays find surprising expressions of hope in the novels and movies they examine, and are themselves efforts to find and express hope. --Will Katerberg, Calvin College Written from a realistic and well-informed Christian perspective, the authors--whose eyes are open to the tragedies and contradictions of life--make a convincing case that narrative can be a gift, a gift that even engenders hope. The book is incisive, provocative, and heartening. --Stephen T. Davis, Russell K. Pitzer Professor of Philosophy, Claremont McKenna College
