I am excited about Good Books I, the new literature course I am teaching with Roman Roads Media.
My students and I together will read and discuss four of my favorite books: The Horse and His Boy by C. S. Lewis, 100 Cupboards by N. D. Wilson, The Hobbit by J. R. R. Tolkien, and Watership Down by Richard Adams.
These are stories that I have read and re-read many times, stories that I love to ponder, talk about, and encourage my friends, young and old, to read. These are stories of truth and fantasy, home and adventure, friendship conquering fear, and faith overcoming weakness. These are the right stories. These are a few of the really good books that everyone should read.
