Her faithful fans have always appreciated and loved the insight of author, Jane Austen. Her novel Pride and Prejudice reveals timeless truths about human weaknesses and how they influence relationships. Elizabeth Bennet’s first encounter with eligible bachelor Mr. Darcy leaves her put off by his arrogance and conceit. He appears indifferent to both her beauty and her spirited wit. The brilliant comedy of manners that follows is a lesson about the folly of making judgments based on first impressions and a lovely observation of the friendships, gossip and pretension of rural England’s early-nineteenth century middle-class life. Originally published in 1813, Austen’s novel is one of the most beloved pieces of English literature of all time and is a welcome first installment in the new “shining a light on the classics” series from Shine-A-Light Press.
Over the years, author Chrisann Dawson has meditated on the truths Austen so clearly highlights and the idea of creating a reflective look at this, still relevant, novel. Her result: a devotional journal on God’s perspective of Austen’s story. As Scripture sheds light on the words of Pride and Prejudice, may the reader better understand his or her own heart. Principles and Proverbs from Pride and Prejudice offers one hundred and twenty entries that present any lover of this classic further insight into the practical lessons of the heart.
The pair of books makes a lovely gift set for both long-time Jane Austen fans and those ready to discover the classic for the first time.
