Stretch the Mind


"A good book supplements the feeding we get from the Srciptures. We see truths worked out and applied. We get help in understanding ourselves and others. We are stretched to comprehend other perspectives and assess them in the light of Scriptures." 
- Campus Lit Companion, IVP 1988

To encourage the reading of good and affordable Christian books, FES has established a ministry partnership with Biblical Graduate School of Theology (BGST) whereby students from FES-affiliated CFs enjoy discounts when they purchase books from BGST bookshop. A list of titles in stock at BGST is available at BGST's Book Corner webpage.

Students are also encouraged to set up booktables at their CF events. To facilitate this, the CF may take a selection of books on consignment from BGST for such booktables.
To find out more about the procedures, contact your CF staffworker

"Reading is like any good human activity; we must find the overall place it is to play in our lives and then make specific judgments accordingly. It is indeed possible that some will read very little but the Bible and will do so to the glory of God. Still, I imagine the opposite will be more the rule; that those who read little other than the Bible
do so to the detriment of themselves and to the diminishing of the radiant glory of 

God who is the fount of all knowledge and truth."
- James Sire, How to Read Slowly, pages 154-155 (Shaw 1978)
