Reading for the Love of God How to Read as a Spiritual Practice Jessica Hooten Wilson

An award-winning author shows us how to read as a spiritual practice in a way that encourages humility, increases our charity toward others, frees our minds and hearts from the trappings of contemporary idols, and directs us toward contemplation.

“In her deft and beautiful way, Hooten Wilson crafts a theology of reading for Christians who have forgotten why it matters.” —BETH ALLISON BARR, profes- sor, Baylor University; bestselling author of The Making of Biblical Womanhood “Hooten Wilson makes the case for reading as a means of transformation into Christlikeness. Her own meditations on the theology, spirituality, and ethics of reading are punctuated with studies of great Christian readers, male and female, down through the ages, which adds a rich layer of historical insight to her own brilliant reflections.” —TISH HARRISON WARREN, Anglican priest and author of Liturgy of the Ordinary and Prayer in the Night
