Faith Adjacent: Jane Austen

In this episode, Resident Bible Scholar Erin Moon takes us on a deep dive into the faith adjacency of that saintly and saucy Regency author, Jane Austen. You know her for her popular works such as Pride and Prejudice, Emma, and Sense and Sensibility, but in this episode, we examine her life to see how her faith might have influenced these classic writings. Join us as we uncover Jane’s prayer life, discuss whether or not her writings can be considered Christian fiction, and find out just what she had to say about biblical womanhood as we search for God in the pages and life of Jane Austen.
