i just read the following blog article And thought the referenced resources would be great in Logos given the direction Logos is going.

Along similar lines, but a more all-in-one reference approach, this would be great to have in Logos:

Invitation to the Classics: A Guide to Books You've Always Wanted to Read (edited by Louise Cowan & Os Guinness, Baker, 2006)

Much less in-depth on each title (for comparison, only 5 pages total on Homer's Iliad and Odyssey, whereas Leland Ryken's book on the Odyssey in the Christian Guides to the Classics series is 80 pages).

And another one that I'll shamelessly plug again, which has an entry by yours truly (on Walter Wangerin) is

The Encyclopedia of Christian Literature (2 vols.) (edited by George Thomas Kurian & James D. Smith III, Scarecrow Press, 2010)

How much on Silappatikaram?

i'm thinking more for the fact that it takes a classics and discusses them from a Christian perspective.

I like the idea of having a resource that would serve as a guide to all the classics.

Using adventure and community to challenge young people to continually say "yes" to God
