Valuable...role models for truth!
Balanced...selections for both young men and women!
Touching...essays, stories, poetry, and complete books!

Our Christian literature is based on Biblical truth. Additionally, the literature selections were chosen for their enduring, ethical Christian values. This Bible-based course explores different types of literature while teaching upper level grammar and writing skills.

Traditional values, endearing characters, and true scripture adherence are in the pages of this course! Within the Bible-based textbook are timeless literature selections from serious Christian authors, whose writings are analyzed from a Christian perspective. These authors were chosen because they teach about the walk of faith, justice, holiness, ethics, and morality. While reading these selections, your student will laugh, cry, sigh, and travel to distant places and times as the insights and adventures of the different characters and their lives unfold.

The textbook studies the different types of literature styles including poems, allegories, parables, essays, short stories, and novels. It also includes the complete text for three novels.

Novels in the Textbook

  1. Pilgrims Progress - (original version) Next to the Bible, this is the second most read book throughout history! It is truly a classic novel about different Christian choices in light of the true Christian walk. In this deeply insightful book, Pilgrim deals with all types of people and situations that students encounter throughout life. The way he deals with them, his resolve, and his focus will strengthen your student's Christian walk.
  2. Little Women (original version) Here is a classic novel about faith and Christian behavior between young men and young women. Among its many qualities, this book encourages and teaches a daily prayer walk, loving sibling relationships, and service to others. The original version restores the often-removed Christian elements.
  3. The Last First Here is a excellent classic novel about how the choice of a college (without researching its true values) can adversely affect an individual's Christian walk. The story is a very good explanation of what happens when families choose nonChristian institutions for higher education or Christian institutions whose biblical walk has been compromised.
