Reading Outside of Christian Literature

There is a great post today over on Tim Challies' blog giving a rationale for why Christians should read beyond their holy huddle of trusted Christian authors. While readily confessing that reading Christian authors is a good thing (and I certainly agree) Challies challenges us to read outside of this narrow sliver of published works. He gives 4 basic reasons for this encouragement.

1) Common Grace

2) Cultural Engagement

3) To practice discernment

4) There is much to learn

Read more of his rationale here.

  1. Good point. There's no greater knowledge we earn than reading the Bible..

    Best knowledge and wisdom comes from God :-)
