About the Book

Book Synopsis



What has Jesus Christ to do with English literature? ask David Lyle Jeffrey and Gregory Maillet in this insightful survey. First and foremost, they reply, many of the world's best authors of literature in English were formed--for better or worse--by the Christian tradition. Then too, many of the most recognized aesthetic literary forms derive from biblical exemplars. And finally, many great works of literature demand of readers evaluative judgments of the good, the true and the beautiful that can only rightly be understood within a Christian worldview. In this book Jeffrey and Maillet offer a feast of theoretical and practical discernment. After an examination of literature and truth, theological aesthetics, and the literary character of the Bible, they turn to a brief survey of literature from medieval times to the present, highlighting distinctively Christian themes and judgments. In a concluding chapter they suggest a path for budding literary critics through the current state of literary studies. Here is a must-read for all who are interested in a Christian perspective on literary studies.



Review Quotes




Christianity and Literature is no less than a call to arms, a call to all young and budding scholars to be the next generation of hope for a decadent and vastly fading field which has lost its way in the quagmire of departmental politics, cultural irrelevance and social agendas. . . . Being myself a professor of literature, I couldn't resist penciling in amen near the margin.

--Marc Ricciardi, Seat of Wisdom, Winter 2012

As a whole, their volume is a solid resource for the student needing a narrative to understand Christianity's contribution to literary history or for the English professor trying to overcome her secular training to more seamlessly approach the role of faith in the classroom. Those seeking wisdom, both from the literary past and the critical present, would greatly benefit from the perspective of this book.

--Joshua S. Fullman, Journal of Faith and the Academy, Vol. VII, No. 1, Spring 2014

Authors Jeffrey and Maillet have given both the academic community and Christian believers much to ponder in Christianity and Literature.

--Terrence Neal Brown, Criswell Theological Review, Fall 2012

David Lyle Jeffrey and Gregory Maillet's Christianity and Literature: Philosophical Foundations and Critical Practice is a noteworthy addition to the field because it helps readers interpret the stories they read in light of God's story.

--Scott D. Moringiello, Commonweal, March 23, 2012
