“The Bible and Magical Thinking” by David Hayward

Have you guys read The Year of Magical Thinking by Joan Didion? It’s her powerful, articulate and moving account of the year following the death of the her husband. Unable to believe and process what happened to her, her loss, her mind continually played tricks on her. It’s a strong allegory for how belief and hope can often cause us to think magically in order to process or even deny reality and the suffering we are experiencing.
