Sue Sorensen of the Department of English at Canadian Mennonite University announces her latest book release.
The Collar: Reading Christian Ministry in Fiction, Television, and Film is published by Wipf and Stock. Combining thematic analysis and close readings, The Collar is a wide-ranging study of the many ways—heroic or comic, shrewd or dastardly—Christian ministers have been represented on page and screen. Ranging across several nations, denominations, and eras, Sorensen’s book is an inquiry into pastoral passion, frustration, and fallibility. The Collar will be of interest to those who enjoy evocative literature and film, as well as pastors, church members, and anyone interested in practical theology — plus, there is a chapter on clergy in Canadian fiction. More information is available on the author’s website: www.suesorensen.net.
