Flannery OConnor once wrote that to the hard of hearing you shout, and for the almost-blind you draw large and startling figures. Some of the twenty-one well-known writers included in this book prefer to shout, as OConnor did, while othersMoreFlannery OConnor once wrote that to the hard of hearing you shout, and for the almost-blind you draw large and startling figures. Some of the twenty-one well-known writers included in this book prefer to shout, as OConnor did, while others offer what Doris Betts calls whispering hope.Shouts and Whispers contains a fascinating array of reflections on topics surrounding the often-perilous intersection of writing and faith.

The authors all agree that literature can help us to be more faithful, yet they approach the subject in ways as diverse as their biographies. Some, like Katherine Paterson and Frederick Buechner, propose models of how literature and belief can fruitfully intersect. Several authors offer insightful metaphors for the experience of doing faith-filled writing, while others speak of writing as finding hope in the midst of brokenness. Finally, in essays by Madeleine LEngle, Thomas Lynch, and others, readers are encouraged to make the connection between writing and embodiment, translating words into actions.While the essays, addresses, and interviews in Shouts and Whispers are by no means the final word, they will provoke rich and nuanced reflection on the dynamic relationship between faith and writing.Interviews with:Joy KogawaAnne LamottKathleen NorrisPaul SchraderEssays byDoris BettsFrederick BuechnerWill CampbellBetty Smartt CarterElizabeth DewberryDavid James DuncanRon HansenSilas HouseJan KaronMadeleine LEngleBret LottThomas LynchKatherine PatersonJames Calvin SchaapLuci ShawBarbara Brown TaylorWalter Wangerin Jr.
