American Literature for Christian Schools tells the story of the writing done in the United States from its beginnings until the present. It covers key events, major literary movements, and principal players of a dynamic heritage that was born four centuries ago and remains today a vital expression of the heart and soul of the American people. Like other anthologies it showcases as fully as possible the rich variety and impressive appeal of the literature produced in this nation. But the book does more. It tells the story of a culture that has shifted from essential agreement with the truth of God's Word to almost universal rejection of that truth. At times the change, as reflected in the literature, has been virtually glacial in its pace, hardly discernible to those of its day. At other times the change has been dramatic, apparent even to casual observers.
"Explorations in Literature" is divided into six units that contain a broad range of literature in a variety of genres and from varying periods. Each unit reflects a different theme: courage, nature and man, generosity, our land, humility, and family. Christian textbook.
