From the Inside Flap
--Matt Chandler, president of Acts 29 and lead pastor of The Village Church in DFW
"It is not enough to read widely, Karen Swallow Prior says in her thought-provoking new collection. We must also read well--and thankfully Karen takes her reader by the hand and patiently reveals how a close (and enjoyable!) reading of literary works ranging from Jane Austen to George Saunders can pull us toward the good life. This illuminating literary overview prompts us to examine more deeply the books we know and love, and to reexamine our own hearts and minds through the lens of great books."
--Anne Bogel, author of I'd Rather Be Reading: The Delights and Dilemmas of the Reading Life
"Prior is the English professor most of us never had. Few teachers are this clear, compelling, and Christ centered! In these accessible pages the hard work of reading virtuously begins to feel both attractive and attainable. Read this book carefully--ideally over several months, with the literature close at hand, and perhaps with a friend--and you'll have the opportunity not only to mature as a careful reader but to grow in grace and virtue."
--Justin Taylor, blogger, The Gospel Coalition; editor, ESV Study Bible --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
