Like Binx Bolling in Walker Percy’s first novel /The Moviegoer,
/literary characters often seek relationship with the God of the Bible.
They feel detached from affairs in the material world. Pilgrims sense a
call from God to pursue him in spite of the unbelief surrounding them.
Essays will be considered from a variety of authors. Topics should
pursue the intersection of faith and literature. Creative writing
presentations are welcome.
Undergraduate Research essays are invited; the Thursday evening session
is devoted to them.
Please submit completed essays to Rich Gray (rgray at montreat.edu
