Old School

Even though I am a pretty casual, relaxed person I am also a big believer in traditions and culture.  I love creating family traditions that are memorable.  I also love reading “ancient” books to gain clarity of biblical understanding.  Some of the older books over more depth than their more current counterparts.

horse-spongeCurrently I am reading 2 “old” books:

1.  Dictionary of The Bible (1899) – an old book that was being thrown away that I decided to snag.  This contains word studies.  Pretty boring stuff, but I love it.

2. Apostolic Fathers Vol 1 (1912) – I received this from a pastor’s library who had passed on.  This volume contains the writings of Clement, Polycarp, Barnabas, & Ignatius.  Not Scripture but does give some extra-biblical insights.

There is so much to learn.  My prayer has always been, “Lord, make me a sponge.”  It’s true.  Why a sponge?  To soak up everything I read/study/teach.

My advice – find an old book and read it.

Send me your recommends.
