I don't really think so. Long ago I wrote to ask him if he thought of 
himself as a Christian writer, and he wrote back to say that no, he is a 
writer who is a Christian. I don't think "evangelization" is part of his 
intention, though I'm sure he'd be happy if it were part of the result. 
BTW, I also asked him, in the light of *Peace,* if he thought of himself in 
any degree as a Southern writer (a la Walker Percy), and he responded by 
saying he that is more of an urban than a rural writer.
