Excursions in Literature
(3rd ed.) helps students learn the foundational concepts necessary for the study and appreciation of literature while applying scriptural principles to the analysis of an author’s ideas. Students sharpen their critical thinking skills as they observe the strengths of good writing and evaluate various techniques and themes of Christian and non-Christian writers. They hone their communication skills through writing assignments that challenge them to compose their own pieces.
Throughout Excursions in Literature, students read literary works from a variety of genres and cultures. They are taught not only to appreciate literature for its creative and aesthetic qualities but also to study the themes and moral tone of each work, carefully evaluating those elements in light of biblical truth.
