DICKENS'S "GREAT EXPECTATIONS" - CHRISTIAN GUIDESTO THE CLASSICS

We hear about the classics and assume they’re great, but many of us are too intimidated to read them on our own. Crossway’s Christian Guides to the Classics series is designed tohelp readers enjoy the greatest literature in history with the aid of a gifted teacher to answer questions along the way. Popular professor, author, and literary expert Leland Ryken situates each workin its cultural context, incorporates published criticism, includes brief bibliographies for further study, and successfully evaluates the classic text from a Christian worldview through analytic commentary.

In this volume, Ryken guides readersthrough Dickens’s quintessential coming-of-age novel, Great Expectations. Exploring perennial themes such as love, justice, and heroism, this book stands as the preeminent example of Dickens’s unrivaled ability to conjure realistic characters and palpable settings.

Each book:
- Includes an introduction to the author and work
- Explains the cultural context
- Incorporates published criticism
- Defines key literary terms
- Containsdiscussion questions at the end of each unit of the text
- Lists resources for further study
- Evaluates the classic text from a Christian worldview
