Description


Flannery O'Connor (1925-1964) is widely regarded as one of the great American writers of the twentieth century, author of singular short stories (including "A Good Man Is Hard to Find" and "The Life You Save May Be Your Own") and two novels (Wise Blood and The Violent Bear It Away). Only in 1979, however, with the publication of her collected letters, could the public fully see the depth of her personal faith and her wisdom as a spiritual guide.

Drawing from all O'Connor's work, and including the complete text of her short story, "Revelation", this anthology highlights as never before her distinctive voice as a spiritual writer, covering such topics as Christian Realism, the Church, the relation between faith and art, sin and grace, and the role of suffering in the life of a Christian.
