For the last little while, that Jeff Carter guy has been reading through The Odyssey, The Illiad, and The Aneid as a personal challenge. He’s been posting a few of his thoughts, particularly where his reading intersects with or informs his thinking about the Bible. The posts are all interesting, of course, but I particularly enjoyed a recent one about the messianic language used in The Aneid, and how that compares to what we see, for example, in relation to King David.

You can read the whole post here. And now I’m sorely tempted to add these three books to the list of things I would like to read once I’m (finally) through the old and new testaments!
