If there is one mission I have in my church and among my friends is to encourage them to read good Christian books. I am an avid reader myself and I am always depressed at how little I see other Christians reading. For some people it might be encouraging them to read period because they don’t already read. For others it might be encouraging them to set a goal of reading 10  or 20 books this year. And for others it might be encouraging them to read books beyond either their reading or comprehension level as a means to stretch them and produce growth.

This morning I stumbled upon a video clip of Mark Dever discussing how as a pastor he has worked to create a culture of reading within his church. This advice is dynamite!
