This book is in the running for topping my “best book I’ve read this year” list. Even though this book was written in 1990, and I have read three others written by Veith since then, this one is still a must read. The sub-title is A Christian Guide to Literature and it is just that! This is a survey of the history of Christian Literature and its various forms (truth-telling, story-telling, singing), modes (tragedy, comedy, realism, fantasy) and traditions (Reformation, Enlightenment, Romanticism). Force yourself!
