(1 review)

Canon Classics

"All of us know somehow that there is a Mr. Hyde and a Dr. Jekyll in us... There's a tension at the heart of human nature. And whenever we set out to dream our dreams and to build our temples, we must be honest enough to recognize it." -Martin Luther King, Jr.

Look Inside the Book

"London lawyer Gabriel Utterson uncovers a strange and startling connection between his friend, the respectable doctor Henry Jekyll, and the sinister Edward Hyde. Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde is an arresting portrait of one man’s struggle with the human condition." -From Ben Palpant's Introduction

Something is amiss in the dark and grimy streets of London, and it's linked to the shifty and repulsive Mr. Hyde. Upon further investigation, it is discovered that the kindly and brilliant Dr. Jekyll is funding the exploits of this nighttime prowler, all the while growing more and more aloof. When Jekyll makes Hyde his heir, the doctor's friend Utterson knows that something is wrong—but he discovers that the truth is more terrible than anyone could have ever imagined.

Though the mystery is well-known to most readers, this Canon Classic remains a great adventure—and a gripping reflection on the nature of sin.

I remember reading a children's classic version of this book many years ago. It was a treat reading the original. Great look and feel of this edition and the worldview guide is a plus.
