Quote of the Day (Paul Elie, on ‘Post-Christian’ Literary Fiction)

“[I]f any patch of our culture can be said to be post-Christian, it is literature. Half a century after Flannery O’Connor, Walker Percy, Reynolds Price and John Updike presented themselves as novelists with what O’Connor called ‘Christian convictions,’ their would-be successors are thin on the ground.”—Paul Elie, “Essay: Has Fiction Lost Its Faith?” The New York Times Sunday Book Review, December 23, 2012
