Augustine’s Confessions is often looked to as the beginning of a tradition of introspective writing that continues to influence contemporary narrative practice in fiction and nonfiction. In this talk sponsored by the journal Image, novelist Garth Greenwell talks to philosopher James K. A. Smith about what writers—both the skeptics and believers among them—can learn from Augustine’s Confessions.

Image is a literary journal founded in 1989 and dedicated to exploring contemporary art and literature that engage Western religious traditions, In 2000, Image, a self-supporting non-profit, took up residence on Seattle Pacific’s campus. The talk is free and open to the public.
