Should you dog-ear a book you love? Should you write in the margins? Two guests challenge us to “read well.” Dr. Karen Swallow Prior believes reading good books builds character, it shows us what courage looks like, it stimulates faith, hope, and love. Joining her is our own Dr. Rosalie de Rosset—as we talk about finding the good life through great books. Don’t miss the conversation on Chris Fabry Live.
