Item description for How Do Stories Save Us?: An Essay on the Question With the Theological Hermeneutics of David Tracy in View (Louvain Theological & Pastoral Monographs) by Scott Holland...
The postmodern turn in theology reminds us that religion is imaginative before it becomes prosaic or propositional. Theologians are now joining literary critics, novelists and poets in asking the question, "How Do Stories Save Us?" Claiming that the truth of religion, like the truth of its nearest analogue, art, is primordially a truth of manifestation, this book explores the question in constructive conversation with the hermeneutics of David Tracy. With Tracy's analogical imagination as a guide, Scott Holland takes the reader on an intellectual adventure through narrative theology, literary criticism, poetics, ritual studies and aesthetics in the composition of a theology of culture.
