I grew up not only reading edited “classics” such as the Great American Novel, i.e., The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn: Tom Sawyer’s Comrade (1885), and The Adventures of Tom Sawyer (1876), but also watching TV/Movie versions of these books. But what do they teach? How are they received across our wider society? What do followers of Christ bring which is unique to this conversation?
Note: Before making any comments, please read Send Huck Finn to College (Lorrie Moore. NY Times Op-Ed. 1/15/2011).
