Talk:Holy Living and Holy Dying
|WikiProject Christianity||(Rated Stub-class, Low-importance)|
Deleted words inappropriate to an encyclopedia.
One sentence of the article reads:
"Holy Living is the less interesting but more useful of the two books, being largely concerned with questions of practical morality, of a type that have hardly changed from the 17th century to today. "
There is of course nothing wrong with saying what the books are "concerned with". But to say one book "is the less interesting but more useful of the two books" is entirely inappropriate for an encyclopedia, since questions of interest and usefulness are ones of personal opinion, not fact. (No matter how many people might happen to share that opinion.) So I have deleted the inappropriate words.22.214.171.124 (talk) 21:38, 22 January 2011 (UTC)
Is this the right project for this?
I understand the content of the books qualifies, but with statements like "Holy Dying was the 'artistic climax' of a consolatory death literature tradition" being in the article, wouldn't this be more suited to Portal:Literature?Mrdeadhead (talk) 03:24, 17 April 2015 (UTC)
