Check out this guy Scott W. Kay on some factors that may be preventing evangelical Christians from producing great literature, including lack of imagination, shaky grounding in theology, and lack of exposure to great literature of all kinds.

Speaking of reading great literature, Ken Morefield is up to chapter three in Jane Austen’s Emma. The less said about his reaction to the Austen-bio-fiction film Becoming Jane, however, the better!
