Item description for In the Light of Christ: Writings in the Western Tradition by Lucy Beckett...

The good, the true and the beautiful--it is for these that our souls long. Though they reside in unity and perfection in God alone, the written word is one place we can discover glimmers of divine light.

The writings of great souls can turn our gaze toward God as he is revealed in Jesus Christ. Even authors who do not know Christ or who reject Christ, can still point to him, for anyone who seeks the truth finds it; and any one who turns his back on the truth turns away from a someone whose presence can often be more keenly felt in his absence.

In this volume, Lucy Beckett illuminates some of the finest writings in the Western tradition and trains our eye to discover in them the Christian vision of God. She masterfully guides us through Sophocles, Plato, Augustine, Dante, Shakespeare, Dostoyevsky and many others. With selections taken from poems, plays, essays, letters and diaries, she deftly demonstrates each author's worth as a bearer of truth.

Reviews - What do customers think about In the Light of Christ: Writings in the Western Tradition?

Your homework done for you  May 24, 2007
Lucy Beckett has done your homework for you and pulled some of the finest excerpts and material from some of the great classics in Western Civ. As a catechist I find this volume indispensable for use in the classroom. It goes well with Regis Martin's "Garlands of Grace" which finds God in poetry. Dr. Martin and Beckett have both taken the best that their written styles have to offer and compiled them together for us.
