Evangelizing the Religious Imagination

This column by Father Ronald Rolhieser, OMI, ran in "our" Milwaukee Catholic Herald, November 6, 2008. In it, he reviews The Shack, by William Young.
The real task of evangelization today is very much that of trying to evangelize the imagination, of trying to put healthy, life-giving images of God into the popular imagination. We have libraries full of scriptural and theological books that are solid and orthodox. These are important because without a solid grounding we soon go astray, but they need to be supplemented.
