The recurring engagement with the idea of God to be found in the writing of Samuel Beckett is examined in this book.. Drawing from Beckett's published novels, plays, poetry and short prose, as well as from unpublished and draft manuscript material, the author explores both rehearsals and rejections of belief. Areas for focus include Old Testament resonances, New Testament images (such as crucifixion), theology, mysticism, the church, and the attachment of Beckett to certain writers who espoused strong Christian beliefs.
