A 1999 course by Darren Middleton at Texas Christian University explores “construals of God through a combination of novels, short fiction, and memoir extracts, on the one hand, and through a sustained reflection on Jack Miles’s literary study of the God of the Hebrew Bible, his God: A Biography, on the other hand.”
A 2000 course by Alan Altany at Marshall University uses “journals, fiction, and web exploration . . . (to access) the spiritual insights of various persons as they portray their search for and experience of
what religions call the sacred” with special attention to the concept of place.
