How to Read a Book: Advice for Christian Readers


Andrew Naselli

Imagine a well-read man.

Do you see a machine dressed in tweed gorging on information? This book is not about becoming that kind of reader.

The well-read man wakes up and consults with Moses on the way to work.

He sips his coffee and ponders the wisdom of Hannibal's elephants crossing the Alps.

He turns furrowed-browed philosophers upside down and takes their lunch money.

He changes his oil and deliberates with Peter Drucker about effective management practices.

He regales his wife with the tale of Monet's water lilies in the Gardens at Giverny.

He sings with Sandra Boynton as his toddlers' eyes grow heavy.

This book is about becoming that man. Be as human as you can be.

Learn how to read a book.

 "Andy Naselli's How to Read a Book will become a cherished tome in every Christian's library. Offering salient and comprehensive advice for reclaiming the love and skill of good reading in a world filled with distractions, How to Read a Book is friendly, pastoral, and inspiring. Andy's tips about organizing a home library put me to shame--and inspired me to make needed changes. Every Christian will benefit from this book! This book goes straight on my required reading list for my Rhetoric Literature students!" ~Rosaria Butterfield, author of Five Lies of our Anti-Christian Age, pastor's wife, former professor of English and women's studies at Syracuse University.
