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.
