Item Description...
Overview
Jane Austen's novels are not only still widely read, but also continue to influence modern film and literature. In both their moral content and their focused, highly detailed, "miniaturist" execution, they reveal Austen's mastery of the art of fiction and her concern for Christian virtues exercised within communities. Her sharp wit and sense of irony entertain, edify, and challenge both men and women alike. From theological and literary angles, Leithart unpacks both character and theme while summarizing each of Austen's major works. For all who desire a richer appreciation of her enduring genius, Leithart offers a hearthside seat.

Publishers Description
Miniatures & Morals: The Christian Novels of Jane Austen Not only are Austen's novels still widely read, they continue to influence modern film and literature. In both their moral content and their focused, highly detailed, "miniaturist" execution, they reveal Austen's mastery of the art of fiction and her concern for Christian virtues exercised within communities. She entertains, edifies, and challenges men and women readers alike. From theological and literary angles, Leithart analyzes character and theme while summarizing each of Austen's major works-Pride & Prejudice, Northanger Abbey, Sense & Sensibility, Mansfield Park, Emma, and Persuasion. Including helpful review and thought questions for each section, this book is an excellent introduction to Austen for students and for all who desire a richer appreciation of her enduring genius.

Jane Austen fans only  Nov 25, 2008
Miniatures and Morals: The Christian Novels of Jane Austen

Only buy this to read if you are a severe Jane Austen fan, otherwise, you'll be a bit bored. I was bored - sorry the truth is painful. I love Leithart though, so buy his other books!
 
Beware: You may begin to enjoy Jane Austen  Jan 9, 2007
It was not until I had read Peter Leithart's gem of a book "Miniatures and Morals", did I have a better understanding of the writings by Jane Austen. Mr. Leithart offers wonderful insight into the world of Jane Austen and the intent that she writes with. Mr. Leithart delves into the world of Jane Austen and looks for possible Christian themes and undertones that may be pulled away from the text. As much as a praise as that may be, it is also my only criticism of his work. I believe that Mr. leithart attempts to create a religious context around POSSIBLE Christian undertones throughout her work. Nevertheless, the insight does help create an ambiance around all of Jane Austen's writings which is intriguing and very insightful.

I do not know which is more difficult, getting six junior high boys interested in the works of Jane Austen, or motivating myself to teach them "Pride and Prejudice". But this became an intricate puzzle of history and literature that both, myself and my students, accepted as an adventure and a struggle worthy to fight.

Above all, I highly recommend this book as it was very beneficial for me and my students. If you are looking for a platform to use to jump into the works of Jane Austen then I would ask that you consider Peter Leithart's, "Miniatures and Morals" as you secondary resource, for it is unquestionable that you supplement that for Jane Austen. Read Austen with your left and have Leithart in your right.
 
Leithart's Genious is Obvious  Jan 15, 2006
Or, perhaps I should say, Leithart's depth of knowledge and love for the texts he's dealing with is obvious; and he communicates both well to his audience. (He spends the first 30pgs or so defending, rather well I must add, the thesis "Real Men Read Austen"; quite funny.)

An excellent text for a newbie or for a well studied Austen-phile.
