Check out this great anecdote from Frederick Buechner (author of the Pulitzer prize-nominated novel Godric and about about twenty more of our favorite books) on his conversion experience.
I love this! John Piper has so much to say about joy (and laughter) being essential to life in Christ, and I dare say it’s not emphasized enough. Good word, George Buttrick. Good word.
Interestingly, that is the main quality that attracts me to Buechner’s writings over and over again. He has a way of unveiling the joy that exists in this world without doing away with the complexity and grey of it all. That is why he is my favorite writer.
