Product Description:

A classic story of an old Cuban fisherman who demonstrates great personal strength, loyalty and endurance. When he hooks a giant marlin - his first "catch" in weeks, it takes him far out to sea, testing his courage, skill and stamina. By Ernest Hemingway. 127 pgs, pb.

Publisher Description:

The last of his novels Ernest Hemingway saw published, The Old Man and the Sea has proved itself to be one of the most enduring works of American fiction. The story of a down-on-his-luck Cuban fisherman and his supreme ordeal—a relentless, agonizing battle with a giant marlin far out in the Gulf Stream—has been cherished by generations of readers.

Category Description for Progeny Press Study Guides & Books:

The best way to describe these wonderful books is “literature and Bible study rolled into one.” Truly from a Christian perspective, these classic and award-winning books are examined in the light of God’s Word and a Biblical worldview. The author sent us several review copies and they are wonderful!

Each guide includes:

  • a concise synopsis of the book
  • information about the book’s author
  • background information pertinent to the story
  • suggestions for activities relating to the subject matter
  • introduction of literary terms
  • vocabulary exercises for each section of reading
  • comprehension, analysis, and application questions for each section of reading with discussion of related Biblical themes
  • a complete answer key and suggestions for further reading

Their brochure states “Our goal is to teach students of all ages to examine what they read, Christian or secular, classic or contemporary, and value the truth it contains as measured against the Bible.” A worthy goal indeed! If you want to study great literature from a Christian perspective, here’s your answer! If in doubt, try just one - we’re sure you’ll be back for more!

Progeny Press guides are available in two formats: softcover staplebound booklets and CD-ROMs. The CD-ROMs originally featured printable .pdf files, but Progeny Press is now transitioning these to interactive .pdf files. Inspired by a tax software, these files are able to be used by the student on the computer, or printed out. Questions in the files have text boxes to type in or buttons to select, so you won’t have to print worksheet pages if you don’t want to. Plus, users can grade their answers and leave notes as well! Upper Elementary through High School CD guides are now interactive, while Lower elementary titles are remaining the same, printable but not interactive. All books to accompany study guides are available from us for your convenience.

Category Description for STUDY GUIDES & BOOKS:

Please note that a brief synopsis of many of the books included here are provided in our Library Builders section. Study guides for the same book are often available from several publishers, so we found it more efficient to give a description of the book only once.
