"Pope John XXIII, in using the word ‘aggiornamento’
in reference to the Second Vatican Council, actually
challenged the present day Christian world to
apply Scripture and tradition to modern and
contemporary situations. It is in that spirit that the
author has written this book. As professor of literature for many years,
specializing in the Great Books, Professor Fiore takes timeless Gospel
themes and examines how these biblical motifs are often echoed in
some of our most beautiful and stimulating present day creations. Some
of the writers covered here are John Steinbeck, Flannery O’Connor,
Tennessee Williams, Shirley Jackson, Franco Zeffi relli and others. Some
of the theater works are Waiting for Godot, Raisin in the Sun, Man
of La Mancha, The Fantasticks, and Our Town; some of the fi lms are
Moonstruck, Schindler’s List, La Dolce Vita, Shawshank Redemption,
Life is Beautiful, La Strada, and Brideshead Revisited. A concerted
effort for a personal style has been made in order to present an intimate
and readable approach to life, the arts, and their Gospel infl uences."
