Quo Vadis? by Henryk K. Sienkiewicz
Quo Vadis?

Jennifer Gritt, January 1, 2010

A very accessible story about the rise of Christianity in the Roman world, Quo Vadis presents a very realistic portrait of how Christianity took hold of the hearts and minds of Romans and altered Western civilization as we know it.

Winter in the Blood by James Welch
Winter in the Blood

Jennifer Gritt, September 14, 2009

Reading this novel is like standing in a cold wind without a jacket. Exhilarating, at moments uncomfortable, but in the end an extraordinary moment in time.

The Story of Philosophy by Will Durant
The Story of Philosophy

Jennifer Gritt, September 7, 2009

For those of you who have never treated yourself to the mind and writing talent of Will Durant, The Story of Philosophy is a great introduction to Durant's work. His ability to speak about great minds, great ideas, great concepts within in the broader realm of the history of human civilization is unmatched and the brilliance of his prose unequaled. Reading Will Durant is like being taught by a great master--it will forever change you and the way you see the world around you.
