Jayber Crow

Wendell Berry’s fictional novel, Jayber Crow, provides a number of interesting passages that relate well to the major themes of this blog. Jayber is the barber (and church janitor) in Port William, the fictional small Kentucky town that serves as the setting for most of Berry’s fiction. As a child at a religious orphanage, Jayber winds up going to seminary. There, he begins to have theological questions and doubts that most of his professors are unprepared to answer.
