S. Lewis said that Christianity works on us like every other myth, except it is a myth that really happened. In The Romance of Religion Longenecker calls for the return of the romantic hero-the hero who knows his frailty and can fight the good fight with panache, humor, and courage. Conflict and romance are everywhere in the story of Christ, and our response is to dust off our armor, don our broad-brimmed hats, pick up our swords, and do battle for Christ with confidence, wonder, and joy. Is religion no more than a fairy tale? No, it is more than a fairy tale-much more: it is all the fairy tales and fantastic stories come true here and now.

How can anyone describe this book? It isn't a parable, a fairy story, or a poem, but rather a mixture of all three. It is beautiful and it is comic. James Thurber was the unique, unpredictable wild card of American humorists, at once whimsical fantasist and deadpan chronicler of everyday absurdities. The comic persona he invented, a modern citydweller whose zaniest flights of free association are tinged with anxiety, is as hilarious now as when he first appeared in the pages of The New Yorker-and his troubled side is even more striking. Here, The Library of America presents the best and most extensive Thurber collection ever assembled.
