This is an incredible book that can open your eyes to the wonders of great literature. After the two introductions by the editors, describing the purpose of the book, and showing why the classics are so important (especially to Christians!), they launch into a basically chronological listing of authors and their greatest works. One author and title at a time, they give biographical information and synopses of the books, as well as giving background information, lists for further reading, issues to explore, short excerpts and more. We found it disappointing only in that we haven't much demand for many of the titles. It's a goal we can all strive for!
