Marilynne Robinson is the acclaimed author of Gilead, a fictional work about a Midwestern pastor. Jerram Barrs and many others recommend it. Her other books that Buswell Library owns include When I Was a Child I Read Books. There was a substantial review of it in The Christian Century (June 13, 2012) by Saint Louis University’s Harold Bush, who teaches English. He begins: “To those who fear that Christian cultural engagement is in a state of intellectual poverty, I suggest looking to the work of Marilynne Robinson for reason to hope.”
