Synopsis

In Nourishing Faith through Fiction, John May passionately shows us that alongside religious tradition and Sacred Scripture, the books we read and films we see profoundly affect who we are and how we view the world, By exploring nearly one hundred works of fiction, this book invites us to see how stories both carry religious meaning and affect our whole being at the intellectual, emotional, and spiritual levels. May uses the Apostles' Creed - the most universally accepted creed within Western Christian churches - as his foundation for understanding faith as "a personal commitment to God's initiative of salvation revealed in Jesus Christ and sustained today by their life-giving spirit." He then divides his book into three parts according to the persons of the Trinity - "Stories of the Creator," "Stories of the Savior," and "Stories of the Lifegiver" - and looks deeply into works of literary and cinematic imagination that fit into each category to see if and how they reflect Christianity's distinct worldview in how we relate to God, others, and ourselves.
