I had a blog reader ask me recently to post what I am reading. Well this is my list for this week. Not long ago I received a comment from a reader who said that the Bible is all that I need to read. While that is intrinsically true I sure have grown from the writings of Godly men and women.
Think about that thought for a second! Should we stop reading in school? Should we not read to learn? Should we not read newspapers? Where does it stop? Letters written by men? Throw away our libraries? I wanted to ask him why he was reading my blog, because it sure isn't the Bible?
Isn't it possible that God uses born again men and women to inspire us with wisdom and truth in their writings? Lest we forget, the authors who were carried along by the Holy Spirit to write the Bible, were human beings. In no way am I placing other books on the same level as the inerrant, infallible, life changing, Word of God. But a lot of redeemed authors of books sold on Amazon have shed some incredible insight and wisdom to this hungry follower of Jesus.
By the way I received an email from a man yesterday who works with Jon Gordon the author of "Training Camp." He came across my blog about reading the book and thanked me for the glowing review. His in laws actually live in Goshen and the next time he is in town, we are getting together. I also shared my desire to write a book myself and he said he would like to talk about that. I also received a complimentary PDF study guide to another book that Jon wrote. Now that is way cool!
