Lonely Without God: Graham Greene’s Quixotic Journey of Faith

Author: 

Hill, Wm. Thomas (Editor)

Credentials: 

PhD; Sophia University (Japan)

This discussion of Graham Greene’s faith uses Monsignor Quixote, one of Greene’s later novels, as a departure point to discuss the author’s faith in both secular and divine terms. The scholars involved in this project wanted to explore innocence and experience, peace and war, love and hate in Greene’s richly human literary tapestry. Greene’s Christianity (or lack of it) is explored, as are his major novels and their often bleak and tatty settings.

Charlotte Elizabeth's Ireland

Author: 

Murphy, Cliona

Credentials: 

History Department, California State University Bakersfield

Charlotte Elizabeth Tonna(1790-1846) is remembered for her religious tracts and her commentaries on Industrial Britain, but her writings on Ireland of the 1820s to the 1840s have largely been neglected. Her Irish reflections cover a range of topics from agrarian violence, landlordism, Daniel O' Connell, Catholic Emancipation, tithes, restrictions on the Church of Ireland in the 1830s, to national schools, the Irish Poor Law, Father Matthew, Repeal, the Orange Order, the Irish language, and, of course, the necessity of converting Irish Catholics.

The Road From Eden: Studies in Christianity and Culture

Author: 

Barber, John

This is a major research study of the effect of Reform Theology on European and
American visual and material cultures. It offers an analysis of Christianity and
culture that builds on the scholarship of Arnold Toynbee and Francis Schaeffer and
utilizes the careful analytical tools of the Dutch scholars Vollenhoven, Dooyeward
and others. Barber’s audacious scholarship aims to put Reform Christianity in
the center of change and interpretation in a way similar to the great Catholic and
Orthodox cultural historians. Barber discusses the Biblical centered energies that
