The first of these articles, which appeared about two years ago, dealt with my efforts to think of a novel that would serve as a painless introduction to Anglicanism. Thus this installment deals with the Anglican novels suggested by readers in the first of these articles.

Notes
"Madeleine L'Engle, a lay Episcopalian who wrote more than 60 books ranging from children's stories to theological reflection, died September 6 [2007] in Litchfield, Connecticut. She was 88". "L'Engle was best known for her children's classic, 'A Wrinkle in Time', which won the John Newbery Award as the best children's book of 1963". "She had been the writer-in-residence and librarian at the Episcopal Cathedral of St. John the Divine in New York City. In November 2000, she told an interviewer for Religion and Ethics Newsweekly that suffering and grief are a part of life. 'In times when we are not particularly suffering, we do not have enough time for God', she said. 'We are too busy with other things. And then the intense suffering comes, and we can not be busy with other things. And then God comes into the equation. Help. And we should never be afraid of crying our, "Help !" I need all the help I can get'."
