Abstract

"All Religions Is Local" by Julie Kane Moses, Jesus, and the Trickster in the Evangelical South. By Paul Harvey. Athens: U of Georgia P, 2012. 182 pp. $28.95 cloth. Wingless Chickens, Bayou Catholics, & Pilgrim Wayfarers: Constructions of Audience and Tone in O'Connor, Gautreaux, and Percy. By L. Lamar Nisly. Macon: Mercer UP, 2011. $35.00 cloth. In a 2009 interview with novelist Tim Gautreaux for the journal Image, Dayne Sherman prefaced a question with a compliment: "Assuming there is such a thing as a Catholic novel or a Christian novel, I believe you've written it." Gautreaux -- one of the writers under study in Nisly's book -- shot back with, "Actually, they are the same type of novel. What happens in a narrative is dictated by who the main character is." Grappling with the varieties of southern religious experience as expressed in verbal art forms from the South, these two new studies remind us that the doctrines of evangelical Protestantism and of Catholicism do not exert any direct or monolithic effect upon southern culture. Rather, they are received within particular social and historical contexts and are transmitted by particular religious leaders, prior to being filtered through the psyches
