Mary Beard & John Henderson, “Classics: A Very Short Introduction”

The book is short (121 pages), and rather quirky. ¬†Taking the temple at Bassae (in the rural mountains of the Peloponnese) as the touchstone, the authors riff on the different ways the classics have influenced and are influencing us. ¬†It’s an enjoyable read, but nothing much here that’s directly bearing on Christianity.
