I have grown to love reading classic theological writers and have always loved history. For most people older writers and historical study is difficult or drudgery. Let me encourage you that reading men like Jonathan Edwards, Martin Luther, John Calvin, or John Owen is tremendously rewarding and worth the effort. We don't mind putting in the work to tone our abs, to make a few more bucks at work, or to play sports. We do it because of the pay-off. Well reading history and reading these time-tested men of God is definitely worth the pay-off. In fact, the more you read, the more accessible and applicable you'll find these resources.
