Realms of Gold: The Classics in Christian Perspective by Leland Ryken

Available for mp3 purchase
Throughout history, great literature has been a cohesive force in Western culture. It interprets our experiences and tells us the truth about our fears and longings. It is a catalyst to our thinking and an invaluable index to the minds and feelings of people around us. In Realms of Gold Leland Ryken proceeds chronologically through some of his most favorite classics, from Homer to Shakespeare and Milton to Tolstoy and Camus, offering not only a taste of the classics, but a framework in which to analyze them. For students studying literature, this book serves as an introduction to the classics as friends; for those who read the classics a long time ago, it is a motivation to renew delightful acquaintances; and for people already intimate with these works, it offers the opportunity to deepen their understanding within a Christian context. Read by Ken Myers. $18.
