I want to read Cormac McCarthy for the prose but I am a Christian and violent stuff like The Road and Blood Meridian are not viable for me.

I want to read Cormac McCarthy for the prose but I am a Christian and violent stuff like The Road and Blood Meridian are not viable for me. Does he have anything not too carnal? I have Cities of The Plain from my dad. Is that any good?

      idk abt this approach, I dont feel as if reading depictions of violence is necessarily something we have to avoid (fellow ortho). But, if you're set on that, maybe read the sunset limited, screenplay he wrote, the movie based on it is really good so i assume the screenplay is.

      this anon is right insofar as you should just read faulkner lol. corncob is a good writer and i love blood meridian, but faulk is insane.

    What? The Bible is filled with violence. Medieval Christian stories are filled with violence. The crusades were violent. History is violent. Jesus himself was violent (at times). What is wrong with you? It’s just a book. If you think it’s demonic, then don’t read it. If you don’t think it’s demonic, stop being such a gigantic fricking pussy.

    There is a sort of redemption in it, with the kid turning into a Christian towards the end and repenting (although by now he’s probably “the man”).

    Someone else recommended it but Faulkner I suppose is good, both as an influence on McCarthy who’s vaguely similar to him and as someone explicitly Christian.

    Why don't you want to read violence? How is it anti-Christian?

    Meanwhile, Léon Bloy writes some of the most disturbing and violent pieces of literature in 'Sweating Blood' and uses them to deliver Christian messages.
