Faith in Literature

St. Martin’s Faith in Literature day and evening groups explore, discuss and make relevant connections between faith and works of fiction, past and present. While operating within the framework of Christian theology, we seek to ascertain how all good literature, even if by omission, deals with and reflects themes of faith.

Join us as we study and explore these works in 2022.
