  1. Wendell Berry's books are set in Kentucky and are beautifully written and have wonderful characters. "A Place on Earth" or "jayber Crow" would be good choices. Reynolds Price is a southern author. The only book of his I've read is "Tongues of Angels", but I would recommend it.
  2. You need to read Silence by Shusaku Endo so we can discuss it. For fiction I would recommend the novels by Wendall Berry, especially A Place on Earth and Jayber Crow. Those were really well written, and the characters come alive. They could have been my relatives from the South. Nonfiction that I've read recently has been mostly Philip Yancey and Ravi Zacharias. Rumors of Another World is perfect to read with Recapture the Wonder and Jesus Among Other Gods. They all have a similar theme. I also liked Scribbling in the Sand by Michael Card. And one of my favorite books, and one that anyone who likes Madeleine L'Engle should appreciate, is Triumphs of the Imagination edited by Leland Ryken. The original book, which included all the arts, has recently been revised and expanded. It now has essays mostly on the practice of faith in literature and writing.
  3. The book The Christian Imagination edited by Leland Ryken has a section on myth and fantasy. There is an excellent essay by Tom Howard entitled Myth: Flight to Reality. There is also an essay by G.K. Chesterton entitiled The Religious Meaning of Myth. The Christian Imagination is a book I would recommend for anyone who loves literature.
