Adversus Idiotas

Last week sometime I stumbled across a new blog. It can be found here.

Whoever this person is, they’ve posted a fabulous piece on the importance of reading books that challenge our mental abilities forcing us into thinking on a deeper level. At one point, the blogger writes: “Some books and authors by their intrinsic value demand a place higher in our mental index than others. These authors and books have a proven track record in changing our perceptions of the world, of ourselves, and at times even of our God.”

From one reader who has a long romance with books to another, may I commend Adversus Idiotas to you today?

This is the day which the Lord hath made! Let us rejoice and be glad in it!
