I don't read the type of scholarly books you do, but I've read a little and it can be a real blessing.
I find that there is much enlightenment in reading the thoughts of others without it necessarily changing my own ideas, although it could do that too.
The type of books I read would be like Death on a Friday Afternoon, The Lord's Supper, and even Pope Benedict's The Life of Jesus. (2 volumes).
I would even recommend the above to those reading this.
You are brave making those kinds of recommendations on this forum. I particularly value the Christian history books of Philip Schaff, Earle Cairns, and Kenneth Scott Latourette. They have helped me gain an extensive understanding of church history. When I taught Church History in Bible College I used Earle Cairns, Christianity Through the Centuries as a text
What do you think is driving the thinking on this forum that God's gifts of teachers who wrote books are useless to Christian growth?
