Dante to Dead man walking: one reader's journey through the Christian classics
What do the book of Genesis, the Second Inaugural Address, and The Autobiography of Malcolm X all have in common? According to Schroth, they are all works worthy of being called classics of Christian literature. In Dante to DEAD MAN WALKING, Schroth discusses fifty works -- from books of the Old Testament to contemporary works -- that challenge the social conscience and raise moral and religious issues in a provocative way.
