This week marked the 91st birthday of pastor and novelist Frederick Buechner.
In honor of the occasion, we offer this introductory reading guide to Frederick Buechner books …
We’ve ordered this list in the order that we think the books should be read, and we offer a brief explanation of why each book was included. We’ve included excerpts of most the books via Google Books.
Buechner’s stunning telling of the story of St. Brendan the Navigator who sailed from Ireland to North America.
“A lusty, bawdy, teeming, festooning, dancing marvel of a book for anyone who cares about Ireland or Christianity or paganism or history or sailing or–reading.”
–Thomas Cahill, Los Angeles Times Book Review
