Strong Women

Nov 17, 2021

Jessica Hooten Wilson is an author, speaker, and professor at the University of Dallas and joined us on the podcast to discuss one of her favorite authors, Flannery O'Connor. Jessica gives us insight on the depth and rich theology of O'Connor's stories - stories that can often be misunderstood as dark and confusing. Jessica explains the power and beauty in O'Connor's writing and how fiction is uniquely able to point us to deeper truths about God and life. After listening to this interview, you are going to want to run to the nearest bookstore and look for Flannery O'Connor's books!
