Roger Lundin (1949-2015) was Professor of English and Arthur F. Holmes Professor of Faith and Learning at Wheaton College. Faithlife already carries several of his books (Beginning with the Word: Modern Literature and the Question of Belief; Christ across the Disciplines: Past, Present, Future; The Promise of Hermeneutics, with Clarence Walhout and Anthony C. Thiselton; and The Beauty of God: Theology and the Arts, co-edited with Daniel J. Treier and Mark Husbands).

I would like to request these others books by Lundin. Links here are to pages on SuggestBooks where you can go vote for them.

Believing Again: Doubt and Faith in a Secular Age - "In Believing Again Roger Lundin brilliantly explores the cultural consequences of the rather sudden nineteenth-century emergence of unbelief as a widespread social and intellectual option in the English-speaking world. / Lundin's narrative focuses on key poets and novelists from the past two centuries ― Dostoevsky, Dickinson, Melville, Auden, and more ― showing how they portray the modern mind and heart balancing between belief and unbelief."

The Culture of Interpretation: Christian Faith and the Postmodern World - "This book offers a broad-ranging account of contemporary American culture, the complex network of symbols, practices, and beliefs at the heart of our society. Lundin explores the historical background of some of our "postmodern" culture's central beliefs and considers their crucial ethical and theological implications."

From Nature to Experience: The American Search for Cultural Authority - "In this remarkable work, Roger Lundin seeks the source of American moral and cultural authority in the shift from nature to experience figured in the thought of Ralph Waldo Emerson. While the pragmatic tradition concludes that experience must generate the very light that will lead us out of its own darkness, From Nature to Experience returns to religion for illumination and truth. This is a story of nineteenth-century sources and twenty-first century consequences in which literature, history, philosophy, and theology are joined in order to form a truly original critique of American culture."

Literature Through the Eyes of Faith (with  Susan V. Gallagher) - "This comprehensive study, cosponsored by the Christian College Coalition, addresses questions faced by students in introductory literature courses. It examines literature as a form of human action and argues that the reading and writing of literary works provide vital ways for men and women to act as responsible agents in God's world. Building upon the doctrine of Creation, the authors show how the reading of literature helps us to be more effective interpreters of the stories and images we encounter daily. They demonstrate that great works of literature open up a realm of beauty and truth and help us gain an understanding of ourselves, God, and the world."
