Reynolds Price, 1933-2011

Celebrated American writer Reynolds Price died on January 20, 2011. He was 77, and he often wove his Christian faith into his writings. He also published two biblical translations. All the great religious creeds, he said, “have known forever that if we’re ever to arrive at the state of anything called wisdom, pain seems to be the way we get there.” Watch excerpts about illness, suffering, and survival from our 1998 interview with him.
