In our journey as Christians, it can be helpful to read and consider resources offered in Christian literature. This can seem daunting, and some of us may not be sure where to start, or how to do this in a reflective fashion to assist our spiritual growth. In this article, Jean Williams provides 11 helpful pointers to intentional reading.

"I used to read Christian books and forget them. In one sense, that’s no big deal: we all forget, and it doesn’t mean we haven’t learned anything.
