ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the views of Joan Didion, a theologian, pertaining to religion and Christianity. It notes that compared to C. S. Lewis, she is doubtful about the Christian faith and she does not offer religious consolation to grieved readers. It mentions that she rejected theology and she does not deal with belief in the resurrection of the dead. It states that due to her unwillingness to the doctrine of resurrection, the eventual reunion with John will not be offered to her.
