I missed that program in January, heard it re-broadcast in August. I was surprised that Ms Tippet failed to ask Ms Russell about Dorothy Sayres, THE MIND OF THE MAKER. In that essay, Sayres, herself an author of several works of fiction, compares artistic creation with God's creation. Sayres' discussion is quite illuminating; if Ms Tippet is still unfamiliar with it, I suggest she'd find it useful. Sayres develops her analogy to show a "trinity" in the creation of, for example, a play. God the Father is like the concept of the play within the author's mind; God the Son is like the production of the play on an actual stage; God the Spirit is like the audience's communication with the author's mind as the audience watches the play acted out and absorbs its meaning.
