Stolen from Caleb’s blog: The Importance of Reading

Posted: June 21, 2010 in Uncategorized

“When we read, we cultivate a sustained attention span, an active imagination, a capacity for logical analysis and critical thinking, and rich inner life. Each of these qualities, which have proven themselves essential to a free people, is under assault in our TV-dominated culture. Christians, to maintain their Word-centered perspective in an image-driven world, must become readers.”

– Gene Edward Veith, Jr., Reading Between the Lines: A Christian Guide to Literature
