Haunted by Christ
Richard Harries considers the work of twenty of these writers, painting vivid pictures of their lives and times. He also provides numerous critically sympathetic insights into the spiritual dimension of their writings.
The result is a book for readers of all religious persuasions, especially those who are fascinated by the ways in which faith is refracted through the lens of great poetry and fiction.
'Haunted by Christ will interest any reader with a modicum of literary knowledge and a curiosity about the role of the Christian faith in modern literature. Richard Harries is celebrated for his fluent writing on the interface of theology and contemporary culture.' Times Literary Supplement
'Enormously engaging, enriching and provocative.' Rowan Williams
