What kind of books should we read?

 Saint Theophan gives us advice on this after he warns us about placing too much emphasis on reading books. Our primary emphasis should be to put our spiritual lessons into action.  When we do read, we should select books that will enhance our spiritual growth.  So we need to select books with careful discrimination. 

Saint Theophan advises,
Read with discrimination and verify what is being read through the genuine truth of our faith.  What agrees with it, accept.  What does not agree with it, reject as  thought against God, and throw out any book that expresses such thoughts.
