Speaker The speaker is Annie Dillard, who is also the author of the book. In Holy the Firm, the author expresses her thoughts in regard to questions such as the reason that humans are created by God; the meaning and essence of God’s work; and the relationship between the believers and God. Dillard encounters great conflicts in her belief in God when she saw that a girl in her neighbour’s farm was burned by a plane crash.

She even wonders if God is just a powerless creator who has no power to save those who suffer from atrocities.
