Lake Wobegon Days Christian?
An interesting perspective. In Christian literature : an anthology , edited by Alister E. McGrath
(Oxford, UK ; Malden, Mass.: Blackwell Publishers, 2001), the last piece is from Garrison Keillor's Lake Wobegon Days. Now, I like the book and it is true that Keillor was raised a Christian, but I would not characterize LWD as Christian, exactly. Any more than Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man is and for much the same reason. The first piece, by the way, is the Letter of Clement to the Corinthians.
