Julia Stiles, The Bell Jar and Donald Grey Barnhouse
Here is a lengthy, but interesting link that interviews Ruth Barnhouse and sheds some information on her father as well. The information on DGB is not all that flattering, so be aware, if he is one of your heroes. Heroes have clay feet sometimes.
I have always loved reading Donald Grey Barnhouse. His four volume set on Romans is with me right now.
Former U.S. Surgeon General C. Everett Koop, who attended the Tenth Presbyterian Church for more than twenty years, said of Barnhouse: "His authoritative voice held my attention, his physical appearance was arresting, and his preaching was teaching of the highest intellectual order ... I always marveled at the simplicity of the faith of this very intelligent and learned man."
