In these lectures presented at Westminster Theological Seminary, Jack Miller integrates theology, literature, and modern culture as he discusses five of the most important European modern novelists of our time: Camus, Golding, Greene, Kafka, and Tolstoy. Best known as a church planter and mission founder, here he wears the scholar's robe to diagnose the causes of modern aches and pains and apply the healing power of the gospel. At one time a Marxist, Jack treats the novelists and their revolutionary friends with sympathy and respect. Along the way the reader learns the Reformation roots of the novel as a genre, the basics of literary analysis, and how to dialogue with a Marxist. Jack provides a Christian perspective on many of our current issues: the lectures on Camus and Tolstoy and the lecture on the ""Theology of Revolution"" lay bare the skeleton of modern revolutionary thought and provide a gospel response filled with grace and courage.
C. John "Jack" Miller taught practical theology at Westminster Theological Seminary and founded the New Life Presbyterian network of churches as well as Serge (formerly World Harvest Mission). His other books include Powerful Evangelism for the Powerless; Come Back, Barbara; A Faith Worth Sharing; Outgrowing the Ingrown Church; and Saving Grace.
