    This book contains much that is promising, but, sadly does not live up to its promise. The author explains at the outset that Christians in America need a sense of "rhetoric" by which he means a knowledge of opposing world views, and an ability to articulate the Christian faith to modern audiences. Fair enough. Yet the curriculum fails to accomplish these aims. The book requires student to write multiple essays each week, but the essay options, given in the schedule planner are often pointless and sometimes absurd. Essay lengths are randomly assigned. "Answers" for the teacher grading the (usually) 1-2 page essays are often shorter than four sentences. Needless to say this does not explain how a student is supposed to take up two whole pages without writing fluff. The book is sometimes in error (one timeline on page 53 dates The Battle of Hastings as taking place in the year 1200). The author's literary analysis is often questionable at best (analysis of Frankenstein as a critique of modernism) and sometimes downright wrong (The climax of the play Macbeth is said to take place in Act III Scene 4). The reading assignments week to week are mountainous assuming the student has other work beyond literature. The DVD is useless in every sense of the word. It repeats author and story information already offered in book, but says it more briefly and sketchily. Good points of the book include excellent literature--you really do get a good taste of classic British literature. The author biographies are helpful (albeit smaller then they ought to be), and literary analysis questions are occasionally insightful. Overall, this book is based on a great idea, but fails to execute it well. Save your money (and time) and buy a curriculum that presents the same material in a more worthy manner.
