CHRISTUS LECTURE SERIES: “THE LITERATURE OF BELIEF”

Authors Dr. Ron O’Gorman and Kaye Park Hinckley discuss how their Catholic imaginations influence their writing.

A myriad of perspectives abound in our world: how do we see the world around us, how do we choose to live in it? A writer’s beliefs, whether religious, political, or social, will affect his or her work. It is a matter of degree whether the work becomes art, or whether it is turned into propaganda.

Expression of belief in God does not compromise art, and is not an impediment to the fiction writer. On the contrary, it aids in creativity, providing a component that pushes life and human reason to a higher, non-material level; a lens through which an author translates a very human world, without moralizing propaganda, but rather with an empathy for all that makes us human, both spiritually and physically.
