Christian Guide to the Classics
In case you've wondered if it's a good idea for Christians to read the classics, Dr. Ryken (professor at Wheaton College) gives you his perspective. Although brief, it's straight-forward and very practical. He covers the basic questions"why and what--but will help you understand how not to read them. I love that he spends some time on the greatest classic, the Bible. He also provides some specifics on reading both Christian and secular classics. 102 pgs, pb. ~ Janice
