Product description


Jordan Cofers book is the first to examine OConnors work in direct connection with Biblical scriptures. Many other Christian readings of her fiction have appeared from the late 1960s forward, but Cofers is the first close textual analysis. His study, which helps clarify OConnors use of the Bible, will be of assistance to students studying her work, professors who guide that study, and anyone interested in the work of the greatest Christian novelist of the 20th century. --Jean W. Cash, Professor of English, emerita, James Madison University, USA.,

Flannery OConnor read the Bible well, and Jordan Cofer skillfully demonstrates how she adapted scriptureoften juggling several sets of allusions at onceto produce some of the greatest fiction of the twentieth century. Far from reductive, Cofers approach makes OConnors fiction seem more subtle and original, more paradoxical, more upsetting. --Marshall Bruce Gentry, Professor of English, Georgia College, USA and Editor of the Flannery OConnor Review,

More than any previous interpreter of Flannery O'Connor, Jordan Cofer attends to the specifically scriptural quality of her fictionher overt biblical references, her covert biblical allusions, her radical biblical reversals of human expectation, her subtle recasting of biblical characters and stories. Moses and Elijah, Job and Peter, Paul blinded and the Rich Young Ruler sent sorrowfully away: Cofer demonstrates how such biblical figures and events are given compelling new life in Flannery O'Connor's novels and stories. --Ralph C. Wood, University Professor of Theology & Literature, Baylor University, USA, --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
