Publisher Comments:

Despite all of his acknowledged greatness, almost no one reads Edmund Spenser (155299) anymore. Roy Maynard takes the first book of the Faerie Queen, exploring the concept of Holiness with the character of the Redcross Knight, and makes Spenser accessible again. He does this not by dumbing it down, but by deftly modernizing the spelling, explaining the obscurities in clever asides, and cueing the reader towards the right response. In todays cultural, aesthetic, and educational wars, Spenser is a mighty ally for twenty-first century Christians. Maynard proves himself a worthy mediator between Spensers time and ours. Gene Edward Veith
