The mysteries of life are a little easier to grasp when we look to the Author.
"My books are my tools. They also serve as my counsel, and my comfort. They are my friends and my delights." - C.H. Spurgeon (1834 -1892)
Read, not to contradict or confute, nor to believe and take for granted, nor to find talk and discourse, but to weigh and consider.
Some books are to be tasted, others to be swallowed, and some few to be chewed and digested.
