The top ten most recent novels on religious themes

You might think religion is gone from the mainstream arts. But Everett Hamner posts a list of the 10 best books of religion in American literature in the first decade of the century, and it seems to be a good one. I note that it does not include Thomas Pynchon’s “Against the Day,” though Pynchon always challenges us to think about religion in the modern world. Maybe they just couldn’t wade through it, or, like me, find the narrator off-putting (a problem in a 1,000-page novel).
I ran across this post in Christian Century, which highlighted it as a list of best religiously-themed fiction of the first decade of the century.
