November Third Thursday: Writing About Faith

Have you ever struggled with writing about faith?

At the Texas Book Festival a few weeks ago, memoirist Casey Gerald, the grandson of a famous preacher, said that preachers have the hardest job: telling a 2,000-year-old story (that everybody already knows) in such a way that it seems like they’ve never heard it before. In this panel, four writers and ministers will talk about how they find fresh angles on old stories and adapt them to the changing expectations and needs of different audiences.
