Christian Guides to the Classics: The Scarlet Letter

Popular professor, author, and literary expert Leland Ryken takes you through some of the greatest literature in history while answering your questions along the way. Each study guide includes an introduction to the author and work, explains the cultural context, incorporates published criticism, contains discussion questions at the end of each unit of the text, defines key literary terms, and evaluates the classic text from a Christian worldview. This guide opens up the signature book of American literature, Hawthorne’s The Scarlet Letter, and unpacks its universal themes of sin, guilt, and redemption.
