THE VALUE OF BOOKS

Being a lover of books, I especially appreciated this quote, compliments of Reformed Renegade:

A poor pedlar came to the door…and my father bought of him Sibb’s Bruised Reed…It suited my state…and gave me a livelier apprehension of the mystery of redemption and how much I was beholden to Jesus Christ…Without any means but books was God pleased to resolve me to himself. – Richard Baxter (emphasis mine.)
