Recovering the Lost Art of Reading

Recovering the Lost Art of Reading

Explore the importance of the disappearing act of reading! When a smartphone offers information at the tap of a finger, has sitting down with a book become tedious and outdated? Ryken and Mathes answer this question by exploring reading's deeper importance---and, in particular, the study of the Bible as literature. 304 pages, softcover from Crossway.

A Christian Perspective on the Joys of Reading

Reading has become a lost art. With smartphones offering us endless information with the tap of a finger, it's hard to view reading as anything less than a tedious and outdated endeavor. This is particularly problematic for Christians, as many find it difficult to read even the Bible consistently and attentively. Reading is in desperate need of recovery.

Recovering the Lost Art of Reading addresses these issues by exploring the importance of reading in general as well as studying the Bible as literature, offering practical suggestions along the way. Leland Ryken and Glenda Faye Mathes inspire a new generation to overcome the notion that reading is a duty and instead discover it as a delight.
