Recovering the Lost Art of Reading

‚ÄčIn today’s tech-driven culture, we have more information at our fingertips than our parents could imagine. And with all the upside to that access, we’ve lost the ability to focus and actually read a book. Dr. Leland Ryken and Glenda Mathes will give practical encouragement on how to recover the delightful and lost art of reading on Chris Fabry Live.
