Let me confess at the start that I am not a very good reader. I do not enjoy reading, but I do hunger to learn and grow in my understanding of many things. So, reading, for me, is a semi-painful means to an important end.
Our brains benefit from exercise. Reading in multiple fields of knowledge is of great benefit. These past weeks have found me diving into diverse readings; from the scientific study of light, to mental constructs referred to as paradigms, to numerous mental health issues, to numerous areas of theology and Biblical studies, etc.
The book shown here is actually easy reading, but it has affected me so much that it caused me to change my sermons these past few weeks. Hats off to Doug Newton. He has done a great service with his “Fresh Eyes” series. I suggest you take a look.
