Lyrical in a way that does not annoy me (as did the early part of Sandburg's

against Calvinism, but a beautifully written book. Have read to about p105
at this point.

Strauss is mentioned on 30+ pages of Pangle's

Pangle's Strauss volume.
Strauss is also cited extensively in the online article: "The
