Some may know Jane Austen simply as the English novelist whose books are required reading in high school and college. Perhaps it wasn’t until the BBC’s extremely successful TV miniseries of Pride and Prejudice or Emma Thompson’s film Sense and Sensibility that many became entranced. Now younger readers are flocking to Austen with a unique twist in the bestselling Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: The Classic Regency Romance, by Seth Grahame-Smith. In this Christian Encounters biography, fans of Jane Austen will discover the Christian faith that was in the weft and weave of her character and how it influenced her writing and her life.

This was such a refreshing book. Instead of making her into a romantic heroine, or concluding that she was a priggish spinster, Mr Leihart offers a peek into the witty, charming, Christian Jane Austen.
The book is easy to read, but very engaging. Anyone with an interest in Ms. Austen will enjoy it.
