Haunted by Christ: Modern Writers and the Struggle for Faith
- Extra Reading
In his new book, Haunted by Christ, Richard Harries explores the role of faith in the lives of twenty novelists and poets. Non-believers like Samuel Beckett and Philip Pullman as well as believers like T.S. Eliot and W.H. Auden all struggled with faith.
At a time when religions language is meaningless or feels stale for many, we can rediscover its freshness and force in the works of novelists and poets.
Lord Harries will be in conversation with Alec Ryrie, the new Gresham Professor of Divinity.
