According to the great American novelist Mark Twain a �classic� is defined as �A book which people praise and don't read� However Os Guinness an author and senior member of the Trinity Forum along with Louise Cowan author and a professor of literature at the University of Dallas present a clear and concise articulation refuting Twain�s famous quote in their book �Invitation to the Classics��Invitation to the Classics� serves two purposes: 1 To introduce the Western literary masterworks in a clear and simple style while reawakening Western people to the vibrant literary heritage and its relationship to the Christian faith 2 To inspire Christians to see the worth of the classics and their responsibility to them This literary guide is divided into four components: Introduction: The Purpose of Invitation to the Classics The Importance of the Classics and The Classics are not the �Canon� From there the authors explore seventy-eight of the best known classics of Western Civilization from Homer�s �Iliad and the Odyssey� to Contemporary Writers Each �classic� gives you information on the author information on the historical time period in which the classic was authored major themes within the classic issues to explore and resources for further study �Invitation to the Classics� is an excellent resource for individuals who are beginning their study of the classics for the first time or those who are revisiting them again like a long lost friend As CS Lewis once said �We all therefore need the books that will correct the characteristic mistakes of our own period And that means the old books�The only palliative is to keep the clean sea breeze of the centuries blowing through our minds and this can be done only be reading the old books�
