If you listen to this podcast, chances are it’s because you love to read. But how does reading play a part in our ongoing spiritual development. Does it fit within the category of what Christians call the spiritual disciplines? And if so, what does that mean for those of us who like to read books that aren’t always geared directly to Christians?
Philip Nation, author of Habits For Our Holiness, joins me discuss these questions and more on today’s episode of Reading Writers.
In this episode, you’ll hear
- Where a 24-themed sermon series should not go;
- What is the most difficult spiritual discipline for people in vocational ministry;
- How reading plays a part in our spiritual formation; and
- What questions should we ask of the books that resonate with our culture.
