Incarnating the Books

June 27, 2012

Books have been my friends as long as I can remember. I call them “friends” because I sense a very real relationship with many of them. They give new ideas, and I debate with them, I go to them as a refuge when I’m tired or lonely, I laugh with them. I can look at a book and tell you where I was when I read (met) it. As an ISTJ, the key to my life has always been information – how others act, how I should act, how the world works, what stories I should know. Books provide this information in an efficient way for me.

So when I grew into my faith and uncovered the path of discipleship, I was happy to discover that the path seemed laden with books. Want to know about God? Read the Bible. Want to know how to read your Bible? Go to a “Bible study,” where you will probably read another book about the Bible. Or go to Bible college to read large stacks of books about the Bible. Go to a “Bible-believing” church, where the main focus is on the exposition of Scripture.

I’m honored to be guest-posting for Adam McHugh at Introverted Church today – meet me over there for a conversation on books, growth in Christ, and the thing I was missing for a long time.

    Great article over at Introverted Church, Aubry. The Word Incarnate really does show us that we must incarnate what we read about him. Thanks for the great insights.
