Just war on terror? : a Christian and Muslim response by Brian Wicker( )

The story-shaped world : fiction and metaphysics : some variations on a theme by Brian Wicker( Book )

24 editions published between 1975 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 955 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Story-telling, since its earliest beginnings, has drawn its power not simply from the intrinsic fascination of a skilful narrative but from the fact that human beings are compelled to make 'fictions' if they are to explain and come to terms with the world they experience. This holds true, as Mr Wicker shows in the course of a profound and wide-ranging enquiry, for the complex and often sophisticated novels and anti-novels of our own day just as much as for such traditional forms as myth and fairy-tale. The world remains 'story-shaped'

"The purpose of this book is to offer a contribution, from an explicitly Catholic point of view, to the debate on society and culture which went on in the weekly press and paperback bookshops prior to its writing. This book is an attempt to show that the Church has a positive contribution to this subject, by underpinning, with an intellectually coherent Christian faith, some of the intuitions and values implicit in the attitudes of the Left."--Foreword
