The Worldview Detective course from the Institute for Excellence in Writing (IEW) will help your students analyze authors' worldviews and learn to discern truth in literature. Featuring live discussions of works by Jack London and Flannery O'Conner, as well as a list of 113 discussion questions to help readers analyze every book, this course teaches a method for analyzing literature that you can apply to any book!

This manual includes the complete text of London's To Build a Fire, a revised & expanded Socratic List of discussion questions, discussion questions and answers for the stories in the DVD, summaries of major literary periods and common worldviews, an explanation and warning about "Christian deconstruction," and more.
