Lessons on good reading habits

Recently in Christology class, Dr. Beeke was talking about the Gospel ministry, and how one application was to read good literature.

I thought it would be good to post some relevent lectures, interviews and other resources on reading good literature.

  1. This is a really beautiful library! Is this how it really looks like or was it prettied up with Photoshop, I wonder?

    The wood work and ceiling look breath-taking. That would be an outstanding place to go and visit!!

    Thanks for posting the picture!


  2. That is how it actually looks Edgar. If you do a search on my blog for libraries you will find a post where I link this site that has a ton of beautiful libraries.

    I have thought that I would like to go tour libraries some day.
