James Prothero
This is a little known book, but in it Don Williams is doing something sorely needed--he is calling for literacy among Christians. Christians are people fo The Book, and if they are not readers and not full of what Williams calls "Biblical Consciousness" they are losing touch with their roots and their God. William's essays are lucid and compelling. This one is a sleeper. Read it.

This book was actually quite interesting and I am not a big literature fan. But Donald Williams surprised me and I really liked the book. His analysis of poetry can also be applied to other forms of art and he ends up giving quite a good critique of some of the huge problems the post modernism has exacerbated and gives some thought provoking answers to how to respond.

This book is an excellent resource for English teachers who want to understand the trends of literature from a Christian perspective. I have used it and loved it!

This is a sound set of essays on poetics, literature and our access to reality .

There are essays on Calvin as a humanist; Herbert and Sidney as poets; plus an insightful piece on why evangelicals can't write.

This is an excellent read if you're trying to understand the inseparable tie between Christianity and literature. Thanks Dr Williams...
