Publisher's Description

The growth of interest in theological hermeneutics alongside the study of critical and literary theory has given rise to a growing sense among students of the need to address the nature of texts and their textuality, and the truth claims which they make.

Between Truth and Fiction begins with an extended introduction to textuality and Christian literature, with an overview of hermeneutics and question about reading and reception. Issues such as intertextuality, the relationship between the Bible and other texts in literature, theology as story, autobiography as theology, poetry and proclamation will be addressed.

Central to the book is the provision of original texts (from fiction, poetry, drama, autobiography, etc) which the reader will be encouraged on reflect on for him or herself. The approach of this book is heuristic. Full study notes and questions are provided.
