      Leland Ryken, A Christian Guide to the Classics (Wheaton, IL: Crossway, 2015). Paperback | KindleThe more I watch television, the more I like books. The reason is not that there are few good television shows these days. On the contrary, television is experiencing something of a Golden Age, especially if you have cable or a streaming service.The reason I like books more is because they have depth and require imagination. An actor must communicate in one take what an author can communicate over se [...]

      Definitely a useful resource when comparing which great books to teach, especially from a worldview perspective that is close to mine.

      This is a great little intro to reading the classics as a Christian. I am extremely grateful for Leland Ryken who has authored a number of books on the topic of literature from a professional (he was a Professor of English for more than 45 years) and Christian perspective. This book addresses a number of fundamental questions and ideas such as misconceptions about classics, what is a classic, why should we read the classics, how not read a classic, how to read a classic, what is a Christian clas [...]

      This book is pretty didactic in nature, so it is not always the most entertaining read, but the material is very good and is presented cogently. This is a thin volume that offers a basic "Christian Poetic" (or Christian philosophy of literature). It makes a good starting point for any Christian who reads, studies, or interacts with literature in one way or another. I am already thinking I might use this if I teach literature classes at a Christian school in the future.

    5. Jason
