Reading for Life

[I do not] want to leave the impression that reading many books is important. Reading great books and reading them well is what is important. Meditative reading, reading which stops and ponders, reading which sees deep into reality—that is the kind of reading which profits. That kind of reading should never end for you. Growth and stimulation and transformation will never end for you. You will be in the company of the greatest minds and hearts for the rest of your life, and you will become their peers if you read for understanding and for life.

  1. I read with this in mind, but have never stopped to realize these are the things I am receiving as a benefit while reading from such people as John Piper, John MacArthur, C.J. Mahaney, Steven Lawson, Charles Spurgeon, Albert Mohler and many others. Reading the Bible should not be any different, since we want our reading to be transformational in our lives.
