Gilead by Marilynne Robinson

About the Book

I love fiction, and I can’t think of another novel that has so inspired me or better expressed just what it means to live the Christian life.

Twenty-four years after her first novel, Housekeeping, Marilynne Robinson returns with an intimate tale of three generations from the Civil War to the twentieth century: a story about fathers and sons and the spiritual battles that still rage at America’s heart.

Marilynne Robinson is the author of the modern classic Housekeeping–winner of the PEN/Hemingway Award–and two books of nonfiction, Mother Country (FSG, 1989) and The Death of Adam. She teaches at the University of Iowa Writers’ Workshop.
