AbstractThis article discusses the ideas of Christian God perception in the works of Native American authors such as Leslie Marmon Silko, Louise Erdrich and Jordan Wheeler. Christian symbolism manifested itself as productive narrative factor in the art of mentioned writers. Baseline of inter-textual meanings on this structural level became implicature, which might be viewed as part of higher formations, such as image system and plot. By transmitting Christian semantics upon authors’ narrations it bounds their texts into unity. Christian motives and derivative images-composites play simultaneously inter-textual formation functions. Erdrich, Silko, Wheeler choose such inter-textual forms that expose tendency for disruption of transported Christian semantics. Using them in the reduced context they come up to their ironical understanding, through such literary methods they demonstrate their critical attitude toward mainstream "white” culture which is represented in the Christian religious doctrine.
