Transactional Reading as Spiritual Investment
Pike, Mark A.
Journal of Education & Christian Belief, v11 n2 p83-94 2007
This article addresses how Christians can read wisely and well as citizens of both God's kingdom and an increasingly secular society. I suggest that focussing on reading as a transaction between reader and text rather than on the morality of texts or the maturity of readers can provide a biblical approach for Christian educators seeking to invest reading experiences with Christian faith. I also contend that reading is one of the ways Christians should invest in a secular society and that when readers sow their faith and invest their spiritual lives in their reading transactions, they can grow spiritually.
