Heroes of the City of Man: A Christian Guide to Select Ancient Literature by Peter J. Leithart Leithart analyzes the grand classics of ancient literature, including The Iliad, The Odyssey, and The Aeneid, commenting on each, section-by-section, and comparing their pagan worldview to the biblical worldview. Chapters contain questions to spark further interest and study, making this text perfect for high school students, as well as adults. "The most obvious virtue of LeithartÆs book is its scope. In a single volume he provides a defense for the value of reading classical literature, a methodology for integrating that literature with the Christian faith, and a readerÆs guide to the works of classical literature that a contemporary reader would most benefit from reading."-- Leland Ryken, Wheaton College. 400 pp.
