Devotional Reading

“Now the layman or amateur needs to be instructed as well as to be exhorted. In this age his need for knowledge is particularly pressing…. For my own part I tend to find the doctrinal books often more helpful in devotion than the devotional books, and I rather suspect that the same experience may await many others. I believe that many who find that “nothing happens” when they sit down, or kneel down, to a book o devotion, would find that the heart sings unbidden while they are working their way through a tough bit of theology with a pipe in their teeth and a pencil in their hand.” — C. S. Lewis

    “My people perish for want of knowledge. Since you yourself have rejected knowledge, so I shall reject you from my priesthood; since you have forgotten the teaching of your God, I, in my turn shall forget your children.”HOSEA 4:6Spot on, Father.

    Can you recommend some of these ‘doctrinal’ books referenced by Mr. Lewis, or others of your own preference for those of us looking for a new direction in recreational reading?Casey
