General Description

Leithart introduces Heroes of the City of Man: A Christian Guide to Select Ancient Literature by presenting the case for why Christians should read classical literature. He then evaluates several popular works including The Iliad, The Odyssey, and The Aeneid and plays by Sophocles, Aeschylus, Euripides, and more. Leithart provides an explanation of important literary elements in each, insightful character studies, and a comparison of the pagan worldview and Christian worldview. It is, in its least benefit, a helpful summary of classic works. At its greatest, it is a detailed course in the Greco-Roman worldview.
