Do you like to read? Maybe you are one of those people who can’t get enough of reading and have a really impressive collection in your electronic library. Or maybe you’ve got about five or six books on your nightstand that are half-read with pretty bookmarks all over the place. Whichever type of reader you are, the important thing is that we do in fact read. If we are going to be transformed by the renewing of our minds, reading Scripture is the best place to start. In addition to this, God has gifted many in his Church with wisdom and insight to write books that can point us to and give us greater understanding of the person of Jesus Christ, the gospel, and the entire Bible.
A challenge we have today is to select reading choices for ourselves and our families that promote sound Scriptural teaching. One way to develop discernment when selecting books is to familiarize ourselves with publishers. One of my favourites is Crossway. They seek to “publish gospel-centered, Bible-centered content that will honor our Savior and serve his Church”. Everything I have read by Crossway is true to their mission and exalts Jesus Christ.
