Inhaltsangabe: What do the book of Genesis, the Second Inaugural Address, and The Autobiography of Malcolm X all have in common? According to author Raymond Schroth, they are all works worthy of being called classics of Christian literature. In Dante to Dead Man Walking, Schroth discusses fifty works—from books of the Old Testament to contemporary works of fiction and nonfiction—that challenge the social conscience and raise moral or religious issues in a provocative way.

The fifty spiritual classics presented in this book are all united by religious themes, be they explicitly Christian or expressive of a broader system of ethics. Schroth puts the books in the context of the author's life, work, and times; summarizes the main ideas; relates them to the religious issues of the twenty-first century; and occasionally relates them to stories of his own personal experience.

Vom Verlag: 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.
