On the Christian writer...

The Christian writer does not decide what would be good for the world and proceed to deliver it. Like a very doubtful Jacob, he confronts what stands in his path and wonders if he will come out of the struggle at all.

Perhaps with context this quote would be clearer...at first I was thinking she was talking about confronting the nihilism in her own time...but if she's using the metaphor of Jacob...then isn't the writer wrestling with an angel or God? Is she saying that we struggle against our times or against our own faith?

I'd assumed struggling with our own faith. But you're right - that quote could use some explanation. Unfortunately I took it out of context from here.
