The Christian novels of Jane Austen
Written by Peter J. Leithart
Real Men Read Austen. So says Dr. Leithart in an introduction to Austen's novels that every high schooler should read. A book about a series of books.
Not only are Austen's novels still widely read, they continue to influence modern film and literature. In both their moral content and their focused, highly detailed, "miniaturist" execution, they reveal Austen's mastery of the art of fiction and her concern for Christian virtues exercised within communities. She entertains, edifies, and challenges men and women readers alike. From theological and literary angles,
Leithart analyzes character and theme while summarizing each of Austen's major works—Pride & Prejudice, Northanger Abbey, Sense & Sensibility, Mansfield Park, Emma, and Persuasion. Including helpful review and thought questions for each section, this book is an excellent introduction to Austen for students and for all who desire a richer appreciation of her enduring genius.
"It was not until I had read Peter Leithart's gem of a book "Miniatures and Morals", did I have a better understanding of the writings by Jane Austen." -Dennis
"I cannot really say just how much I love this book. The author offers deeply insightful commentary on Jane Austen's novels and their Christian point of view. I've already given it as a gift and plan to use it as a book study guide for a reading group for young women. It is a masterpiece." -a reader
