1898. Hillis writes in the foreword that he approaches these volumes from the viewpoint of a pastor, interested in literature as a help in the religious life, and seeking to find in these writings bread for those who are hungry, light for those who are in darkness, and life for those who walk in the shadow of death. Leaving to others the problems of literary criticism, these studies emphasize the importance of right thinking in order to right conduct and character, and the uses of great books as aids and incentives to the higher Christian life. Some of the works examined in this volume include: John Ruskin's Seven Lamps of Architecture as Interpreters of the Seven Laws of Life; George Eliot's Tito, in Romola; Hawthorne's Scarlet Letter and the Retributive Workings of Conscience; and others.
