Time for a Great Cartoon (Reading)

What have you been reading lately? READING is a Christian discipline which needs to be cultivated and practiced. It is so easy to allow others to do our thinking for us, don’t you agree?

I’m all for reading good Christian books — and I’ve written a few over the years. But I believe it is also important to read books that are not from a Christian perspective. Brand new believers need their reading diet to be from strong and sound books that help them grow in their Christian lives.

For those of us who have been believers for a while, it is quite likely that some of our non-Christian friends are reading books that we too need to read. Some of those books are direct attacks on our Christian faith. I call these “books that will boil your blood before you get past the preface”! Here are some of those books which I’ve read over the last few years:

Each of these books challenges some major areas of Christian faith. What books are YOU reading that challenge you to think more deeply about your beliefs?

    “But I believe it is also important to read books that are not from a Christian perspective.”

    I believe we have the freedom to read any book we want as Christians but I don’t think it’s important to read non Christian books.

    I do believe some people who are into apologetics need to inform themselves though.

    Do they help you in your faith?

    Brother Charles: Thank you for your comment! I’m not suggesting reading such books for our spiritual nourishment, but to help us see what the questions are that our non-Christian friends have. A certain level of apologetics ought to mark every Christian, would you not agree? Thanks again for your comment! Blessings. Dr. D.
