We make it a practice at FBC Waupaca to hand out one of the book resources listed below almost every Sunday. We believe in the importance of growing as individuals through reading. Francis Bacon once said, “Reading maketh a full man; conference a ready man; and writing an exact man.” We hope our church to be full of individuals who are full from reading, and therefore ready to be the disciples God has called them to be.
Charles Spurgeon on reading much: “Little learning and much pride comes from hasty reading. Some men are disabled from thinking by their putting meditation away for the sake of much reading. In reading let your motto be, ‘much, not many’”
In the shadow of his death, Paul asked Timothy to bring him his books (2 Timothy 4:13). John Piper says in light of that, “Form the habit of reading now, and never think you will outgrow it as you approach the grave.”
