Mark Eaton is Professor of American Literature at Azusa Pacific University and also, since 2015, editor of the journal Christianity and Literature, now in its 70th year. Last year, Mark published Religion and American Literature since 1950, a book that shows how prominent American novelists portray America’s evolving religious landscape. We talk about the complexity of religion in modern America, literature’s engagement of that complexity, and the challenges of belief that confront us all.
