Mere Fidelity: What’s Right (and Wrong) with ‘Relatability’

Mere FidelityThis issue we take up the issue of ‘relatability’ in literature taken up by Ira Glass and Rebecca Mead. Do we need literature to be immediately relatable? Do I need a story about a 28-year old college pastor in order to have a story I can connect to? Does the Bible have to give us characters that are immediately within our reach, or is it okay that we have to work to get into the narrative?

As always, feel free to share.

Soli Deo Gloria
