The Weekly Hit List: August 3, 2012

God and Charles Dickens by Gary L. Colledge was reviewed in Englewood Review of Books.

“. . . Colledge’s work has been among the most valuable contributions to Dickens scholarship in recent years. His new book, God and Charles Dickens: Recovering the Christian Voice of a Classic Author, focuses on a crucial aspect of Dickens’s life and work that has been sadly neglected of late.

“Without an awareness of this aspect, Colledge rightly believes, we are hampered in our understanding of  Dickens’s work. . . .

“. . . The resulting book will appeal to and enlighten Dickens readers at all levels, from the casual fan to the serious scholar.”

Living into Focus by Arthur Boers was reviewed in the July issue of Salvationist.
