Many contemporary public intellectuals have described our age as one in which religious absolutes have been called into deep question. Both those thinkers and their critics ask the same question: How can we find meaning and identify values in this new secular age? In All Things Shining, two distinguished professors tackle this potential crisis by exploring classic writings that most of us grappled with only as test topics. Their illuminating discussion of writers including Homer, Kant, Melville, Dante, Luther, and Descartes reveals a stabilizing groundwork of meaning.
