Check out my blog post on www.seedbed.com, where I explain Why I Have Started Reading Fiction: http://seedbed.com/feed/why-i-have-started-reading-fiction. In the post, I describe how the call to read fiction both shocked me and helped me as a Bible reader and a Bible teacher.
In the post I talk about reading Wendell Berry’s That Distant Land, a collection of short stories. I finished it this week and it certainly did not disappoint. I am finishing a few other books (non-fiction books, but keep that on the down low…I don’t want Eugene Peterson to find out!), but when I finish those, I plan on reading Berry’s novel Jayber Crow next, probably over the summer.
