Here is a guidebook for those who want to cultivate literary taste&-knowing how to recognize books that are spiritually and aesthetically good. Gene Veith helps book lovers better understand what they read as he explains how each major literary genre communicates. Showing how comedy, tragedy, realism, and fantasy can portray the Christian worldview, Veith delves into related topics such as the value of fairy tales for children, the tragic and the comic sense of life, the contrast between the classical and the Hebraic traditions, and the role of postmodernity (a subject of vital importance to Christians). Veith introduces readers to writers past and present so that Christians can influence culture from an educated perspective and get more out of their reading.
