Seattle Pacific University Scholar Wins Fiction Book Award

Suzanne M. Wolfe, writer-in-residence at Seattle Pacific University, received the 2017 Book Award in the fiction category from the magazine Christianity Today. Wolfe was honored for her novel The Confessions of X (Thomas Nelson, 2016).

A judge for the magazine book awards stated that “in this gripping, beautifully written historical novel, Wolfe brings the ancient city of Carthage to life, immersing readers in the experiences that shaped the theology of Augustine of Hippo. In her deftly told and well-researched story, the unnamed woman whom Augustine loved and lived with for 13 years rises from the footnotes of history to become a dynamic, fully fleshed character.”

Suzanne Wolfe is a native of the United Kingdom. She holds a bachelor’s degree and a master’s degree in English literature from the University of Oxford. Wolfe came to the United States in 1984 and joined the faculty at Seattle Pacific University in 2000. She is the executive editor of the Seattle-based literary journal Image.
