Publisher's Description: Writers - poets, novelists, playwrights and bards - have always been essential witnesses to the mysteries o f life, the soul and God. Unfortunately, many of these great artists have been sidelined and even censured in the curricula of some schools. This has deprived us of great works of literature. Now, in the anthology, Shadow and Light, these monumental epics are now available once again.

This anthology contains works by John Donne, John Bunyan, Samuel Johnson, Henry Newman, Frederick Douglass, Langston Hughes, Madeleine L'Engle, Annie Dillard, Nathaniel Hawthorne, Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Leo Tolstoy, I. L. Peretz, Willa Cather, Katherine Anne Porter, John Updike, Alice Munro, Albert Haley, William Shakespeare, Anne Bradstreet, Alfred Lord Tennyson, C.S. Lewis, T.S. Eliot, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Tony Harrison, Horton Foote, plus many, many more wordsmiths of faith.
