How to read as a Christian

We love books. That is no secret to anyone who has been watched or listened to Media Gratiae over the years. And for long-time viewers, you know we take one or two episodes every year to share some book recommendations for the upcoming year.

This year we called on Jeremy Walker to join us in our book recommendation episodes. We will get to specific books next week, but we wanted to spend this week discussing the first five of six principles to keep in mind when reading books. There is a way to read books that will bring benefit to your soul, and there is a way to waste your opportunity of reading. We want to encourage good principles and warn of dangerous ones.
