This comprehensive anthology brings together the best literary writing from the Bible onwards. Authors include Dante, Chaucer, Jane Austen, Maya Angelou, C.S. Lewis, A.A. Milne, Sebastian Faulks and Penelope Lively. Reading a good book is for most people a deeply satisfying experience. What, though, makes a book good? According to Mary Batchelor, good fiction "rings true". It encourages us to exercise our moral judgement, leads to greater understanding of ourselves and others, broadens our compassion and expands our knowledge of life and of human strength and frailty. In The Lion Literature Collection, readers are taken on a rich and stimulating journey through some of the finest of world literature. Extracts of power and profundity are mixed with humour and satire.
The book is divided into five parts: The World We Live In; Being Human; Knowing God; Good and Evil; and The Cycle of Life.
Mary Batchelor is the author of The Lion Book of Children's Prayers and The Children's Bible in 365 Stories.
