I love to read.
I hate to read.
I dont have time to read.
I only read Christian books.
Im not good at reading.
Theres too much to read.
Chances are, youve thought or said one of these exact phrases before because reading is important and in many ways unavoidable. Learn how to better read, what to read, when to read, and why you should read with this helpful guide from accomplished reader Tony Reinke. Offered here is a theology for reading and practical suggestions for reading widely, reading well, and for making it all worthwhile.
"Books will complicate your life," Reinke says in his first chapter. He goes on to explain that there is much that books will add to your life. At the very least they provide different experiences and worldviews, as well as the understanding of how to minister to people. He tries to convince his readers of the need for reading and the vitality of a life of words.
Reinke writes in an extremely intellectual way, digging deeply into theology and literary criticism. Whereas non-readers may not be inspired to become avid devourers of literature, he gives many helpful suggestions on how to fit reading into a busy schedule.
The only point of controversy is Reinke's belief that Christians should read non-Christian books as well as Christian. Readers who might disagree with this belief are encouraged to follow their convictions and draw their own conclusions. Just as 1 Corinthians 8:1-13 says, Reinke encourages his readers to not destroy themselves or others by reading if the material is too difficult to handle.
Overall, the book is well written and formatted in a way that is easy to read. Lit! is a great addition to any reader's personal library. Thus, as Reinke says, "We press on, reading and thanking God for the light we do see in books, and for his illuminating grace that lights our way." - Katelyn S. Irons, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
