John Updike’s Barthian itch

A while ago I commented on the theology of John Updike’s splendid novel Roger’s Version (1986). And I’ve just discovered that a recent volume on theology and literature includes an essay on just this topic:

J. N. Middleton, “Scratching the Barthian Itch: A Theological Reading of John Updike’s Roger’s Version,” in Believing in the Text, ed. David Jasper and George Newlands (Oxford: Peter Lang, 2004).
