Buechner reminds us in his wonderful book Telling the Truth: The Gospel as

ROY M. ANKER December 1978 This new book by clergymannovelist Frederick
Buechner is about the necessity of preaching from the guts. Telling the Truth: The
Gospel as Tragedy, Comedy, and Fairy Tale sets forth the notion that for

” or “just what it would appear to be in the interests of the Gospel for us to say” (p.
7). A more useful wellspring for its doing lies in that deep and silent region of the
self that ...

But the closest I have come to putting my finger on it, I think, falls in the final
words of Frederick Buechner's aptly titled book Telling the Truth: The Gospel as
Tragedy, Comedy and Fairy Tale: Let the preacher tell the truth. Let him make
audible the silence of the news of the world with the sound turned off so that in
that silence we can hear the tragic truth of the Gospel, which is that the world
where God is absent is a dark and echoing emptiness; and the comic truth of the
Gospel, which is ...

and the fairy tale is that extraordinary things happen by God's grace.4 The plot
Lowry came up with is a law/gospel plot that sounds like Buechner and Crum
