Francis Schaeffer on Reading

posted by CK

"Americans don’t read enough (that’s true), and Americans read too much (that’s true too). What I mean is that Americans don’t read enough material to really be informed, and yet the read too much because what they do read they often do not stop to assimilate and think through. I urge you, in such a day as ours, to really truly learn to read!” 

-- From Back to Freedom and Dignity, pg 364 of The Complete Works of Francis Schaeffer.
