Cokesbury
A Christian Guide to Reading Books
$12.99
($17.99)

A call for Christians to reclaim the priority, privilege, and practice of reading.

Christians are identified as people of the Word--submitted to the authority of God's written Word, called to center our lives on it and not on the image-driven world that vies for our gaze. But how do we build such lives, and what do they look like?

Tony Reinke's answer is that we are to be readers of the Word of God and of the many other books that reflect God's truth, goodness, and beauty in the world. In Lit : A Christian Guide to Reading Books, Reinke lays out a theology of reading built around the gospel, developed from Scripture, and corroborated by church history. He offers guidance for exercising discernment in what we read, and practical advice on how to read regularly and well. Reinke also explains how to foster a culture of reading in our churches and homes. The book stresses that we may find truth, help, insight, or beauty in many different forms of literature, from theology to fiction to fantasy to business. Reinke reminds us that God is the author of all knowledge, and we read every book under his illumination.
