Loved this quote from preacher J John who was quoting Baptist minister C H Spurgeon.
Spurgeon was commenting on a passage in Paul’s letters where he told his friend Timothy to bring the books he left behind:
St Paul – he’s inspired yet he wants books. He’s been preaching 30 years and yet he wants books. He’s seen the Lord yet he wants books. He has had a wider experience than most people yet he wants books. He has been caught up to the third heaven and heard things it is unlawful to utter yet he wants books. He has written the major part of the New Testament yet he wants books.J John Defining the Future in Together (magazine for Christian booksellers) 34, Nov-Dec 2018, p 33
