This week on Up Close, what happens when you take some of the most well-known writers of today, and have them talk about some of the oldest stories we know of?
Literary agent Andrew Blauner gathered together some of the names you know best from the worlds of journalism and fiction and had them write about passages in the Bible for the new collection: The Good Book: Writers Reflect on Favorite Bible Passages.
And then, when Jewish day school graduate Aviya Kushner went to one of the most well-known graduate writing programs in the country, she studied under Marilynne Robinson, one of the most well-known writers in the country. It was in a class about the Bible that she discovered the traditional Jewish approach to reading the Bible is almost entirely absent from others’ readings. That led to her book, The Grammar of God: A Journey Into the Words and Worlds of the Bible.
