Reading Between The Lines: A Christian Guide to Literature

Product SKU: B611

Here is a guidebook for those who want to learn how to recognize books that are spiritually and aesthetically good — to cultivate good literary taste. Gene Edward Veith presents basic information to help book lovers understand what they read, from the classics to the bestsellers. He explains how the major genres of literature communicate.

By supporting worthy authors, Christians can exert a powerful influence on their culture. SPECIAL BONUS – Receive the Summer 2000 issue of the “Christian Research Journa
