Jane Austen on Atheism

The author of Pride and Prejudice was a committed believer. Jane Austen died 200 years ago today on July 18, 1817. She is buried in Winchester Cathedral in Hampshire, England.

Rebecca McLaughlin, Vice President of Content for the Veritas Forum, outlines a response to contemporary atheism from the life of Jane Austen. You can access her article here. McLaughlin demonstrates how Austen’s prayers, life, and works all serve as a repudiation to the popular secular outlook of our day. It seems the author of Sense and Sensibility found atheism to be rather insensible.
