Editorial Reviews


"A remarkable display of erudition, crammed with insight and personalized in light of Schroth's experiences as soldier, priest, professor, writer." -- John Deedy, former managing editor, Commonweal

"Practical, not pietistic, these works resonate in our souls, and Schroth's succinct essays place them deftly within our reach." -- Paul Wilkes, author, The Good Enough Catholic: A Guide for the Perplexed

"This volume offers us the wisdom of a lifelong reader of good books." -- Lawrence S. Cunningham, author, Thomas Merton and the Monastic Vision --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Publisher

Raymond Schroth's discussions reflect an authority based on years of experience with Christian classics in his roles as author, editor, and college professor. He enhances his authority by choosing works not only for their historical or literary influence, but also for their particular effect on him: did this book challenge his own thinking about moral or religious issues? Was this novel enjoyable enough to recommend to a friend? His personal testimony of the pleasure and influence of these works in his own life gives readers an intimate perspective not often available in surveys of great literature. Through his revealing, forthright approach, Schroth provides an inviting gateway to the Christian classics for beginners who want a gentle introduction or for more experienced readers who are looking for fresh insight. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
