Faithful Vision examines African American novels written during the last half of the twentieth century, demonstrating that religious vision not only informs black literature but also serves as a foundation for black culture in general. Reviewing novels written James Baldwin, Toni Morrison, John Edgar Wideman, Gloria Naylor, Erna Brodber, Ishmael Reed, and others, the author explores how black authors have addressed the relevance of faith, especially as it relates to an oppressive Christian tradition; and shows that ultimately, their novels never reject the vision of faith. Faithful Vision contributes a bold critical dimension to African American literary studies.
