When the road to faith is paved with great literature.
Mark Storer says his road to faith was paved with great literature. He is so convinced of the power of great reading to change one's life that he says, reading led me to Christ. Great writers, older and contemporary, secular and Christian, in their honest vision and with their gift of words, keep taking him back to the Bible and to Christ. In this study we'll consider if God's truth can be found in literature, even the secular kind.
