Bible and Novel

Narrative Authority and the Death of God

Norman Vance

  • Discusses still-popular nineteenth-century novels and novelists from a new perspective.
  • Challenges conventional views of the nineteenth-century novel as mainly realist and secular.
  • Relates to contemporary interest in questions of 'secularization' and the 'post-secular'.
  • Re-reads familiar but over-simplified narratives of the rise and fall of the authority of the Bible.
