    If you want a guide to the great books, look no further than Old Western Culture. With a warm mug of tea, curl up and listen to Wes Callihan walk you through the classics from his worn leather armchair. His The Essential Iliad, released in January, ranks with Richmond Lattimore and Emily Wilson.

    It’s been a long journey from The Greeks to Shakespeare. This year we find ourselves in Britain, as we begin the Early Moderns. Peter Leithart’s style is different, but like Callihan, he draws you in. It’s a harmonious blend of literature, history, philosophy, and theology.

    Teaching Shakespeare from a Christian Worldview? Leithart’s Brightest Heaven of Invention: A Christian Guide to Six Shakespeare Plays needs to be on your list.
