When the World was Young is a historical fiction novel that tells the story of Rahab, a Canaanite prostitute, prior to when she’s introduced in the Hebrew Bible. Set in the ancient Near East during the Late Bronze Age, this coming-of-age novel explores themes of rejection and deception, love, loss and belonging.
Interspersed between readings of When the World was Young I’ll share highlights from my academic work that explores the narrative theory of Paul Ricoeur on fiction’s capacity to “remake reality,” and the ways in which our engagement with fiction is a reflection of the Imago and Missio Dei, both the image and mission of God.
