How to Read a Book — A Conversation with Andy Naselli | Ep 91
May 29, 2024 Season 6 Episode 91
Clay Kraby

What does it mean to be well-read? How can we choose which books are worth our time and which ones aren’t? Is it okay to give up on a book we’re not enjoying? Do audiobooks ‘count’ as reading?

On this episode of the podcast we’re tackling all of these questions and a lot more.

Our guest is Andy Naselli, professor at Bethlehem College and Seminary and author of How to Read a Book: Advice for Christian Readers.

We’ll talk about the importance of reading in the Christian life, how we can overcome some bad reading habits, different ‘layers’ of reading, how to instill a love of books in our kids, and more.

As always, I’ve taken the notes for you on the show notes page below, where you can find additional information and links to the resources we talk about.
