Al Mohler posted a great on Books, Libraries and the Ideal of Christian Scholarship, which reminds us of how Christianity is a religion of the written word, both inspired and uninspired.
Christianity has been closely connected with the book and the written word from its inception. Books remain important to Christians–scholars and laypersons alike. We should be thankful that at this historical juncture the book is more accessible than ever. Serious Christians can and should start personal libraries of important and worthy Chrisitan books. Some will be large and some will be small, but each can serve us the way Jerome’s library served him–and blessed the church.
So how does one know which books are right to put in his own library? You’ll begin to figure that out for yourself as you read.
