Take Up and Read: Know the Truth


Studying together

This current blog series on Reflections is intended to encourage Christians to read more vigorously by providing a beginner’s guide to some of the Christian classics in such fields as theology, philosophy, and apologetics. Hopefully a very brief introduction to these important Christian texts will motivate today’s believers, as St. Augustine was called to in his dramatic conversion to Christianity, to “take up and read” (Latin: Tolle lege) these classic books.

This week’s book, Know the Truth: A Handbook of Christian Belief, is by Christian theologian Bruce Milne and is one of the finest handbooks available on the study of Christian doctrine. If I were asked to recommend one book for Christians to read in order to understand the essentials of the faith, Milne’s work would immediately come to mind. I first read it as a college student and I still refer to it in my scholarly studies.
