Item Description...
Overview
Christians are people of the Word, living in an image-driven society where TV robs non-readers of imagination, critical thinking, and more. Veith's guidebook celebrates the spiritual and aesthetic value of good literature, explores how various genres portray the Christian worldview, introduces worthy authors, and helps you understand what you read---from the classics to bestsellers.

Publishers Description

Here is a guidebook for those who want to learn how to recognize books that are spiritually and aesthetically good--to cultivate good literary taste. Gene Edward Veith presents basic information to help book lovers understand what they read--from the classics to the bestsellers. He explains how the major genres of literature communicate. He explores ways comedy, tragedy, realism, and fantasy can portray the Christian worldview. These discussions lead to a host of related topics--the value of fairy tales for children, the tragic and the comic sense of life, the interplay between Greek and Biblical concepts in the imagination, and the new "post-modernism" (a subject of vital importance to Christians).

In the pages of this book, readers will meet writers, past and present who carry on a great literary tradition. By supporting worthy authors, Christians can exert a powerful influence on their culture.

"What a superb resource this is It resonates with profound perceptions of how good literature works to enrich and illuminate us. Dr. Veith proves himself once again to be a knowledgeable guide through the landscape of the written word." --Luci Shaw, author of God in the Dark and Polishing the Petoskey Stone

"Veith makes it clear that the joys of reading can be deep joys of the type which can enliven our souls. This book should raise significantly the cultural level of evangelicalism." --Dr. Edward E. Ericson, Jr., Calvin College

"Reading Between the Lines is thoroughly readable and thoroughly literate--a magnificent blending of history, literature, and theology that will be welcomed by professionals and laity alike." --Dr. Wayne Martindale, Wheaton College

"Ed Veith has written on important topics with his usual clarity, good sense, organizing ability, and comprehensiveness. The scope of the project is impressive." --Dr. Leland Ryken, Wheaton College

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Unearthing gems! (Originally posted March 15, 2005)  Sep 22, 2006
Gene Edward Veith is a gem! Such clarity and lucidity in his body of work. I am a huge fan of all things literature and have always been one who likes to dig into the "thoughts" of a writer to see what is going on between the lines. As a matter of fact, I have often been accused of reading TOO much in between the lines. This book helped me to see more clearly what does lie between the lines; much that we might miss in light of our own culture and unique perspectives. Veith provides clear insight and sound logic in urging readers to really look at what is explicitly on and in the pages of literature.

I have often thought that literature is a window to the culture of particular time and place, and Veith draws the curtains open on such a window! Let the glorious light shine and may your reading be full of insight; and in much of literature, between the lines of every page lies a gem to be unearthed.
 
Abrahamaic World View  Sep 4, 2006
I didn't see anything in the book, or in the readers' response to the book, that indicates that either the author or the majority of his readers gets the immoral equivalency of the Abrahamaic scriptures (Torah, Gospel, Koran.) We need to drop our worldviews, not prop them up, if mankind is ever to progress beyond petty religionism.

This Book has the wrong title!!!  Aug 3, 2001
The only problem with this book is that it has the wrong title. It shouldn't be called a "Christian" guide to literature, but simply a guide to literature. I heartily recommend this book to both my Christian and non-Christian friends.

Mr. Veith clearly explains the importance of literature in our modern society. His description of the different literary forms gave me a new appreciation for some genres that in the past I had avoided. This book is important to both the avid reader as well as some one who would like to develop an appreciation for literature. It is most appropriate for anyone who has an interest in literature, not just Christians.

 
Love Books? Don't Miss This One  Jul 20, 2001
We live in a time which allows book lovers access to a tremendous amount of literature, but we often need help in sorting through the junk to get to the nuggets of gold. Veith has done an outstanding job of teaching the lover of reading what to look for (and look out for) in books. The author explores how to seek out quality works of fiction, non-fiction, and poetry in helping the reader develop a sense of good literary taste. The book also explains how literature has changed from the Middle Ages to the present, but in an entertaining way. Veith's writing style makes sometimes confusing literary concepts easily understood. A very enjoyable read.
