The Discerning Reader Is Back!

This is news that I have long been waiting to hear! Tim Challies announced today that he has recently redone the Discerning Reader website, and now it is better than ever! Let me be quick to note that there is no relation between Tim and the previous operators of the Discerning Reader, and it looks like there great things ahead for the website. Here are some of the things Tim mentioned today about the new site: New York Times Bestsellers - We are reviewing many of the books that appear on the New York Times list of bestsellers. We hope to be able to expand this section to include all the books featured in the top position in nonfiction. Expert Lists - We have asked some of the most discerning and widely-respected authors and teachers to send us lists of books they recommend for various purposes. Where To Start Lists - Interested in beginning to read about a new topic? Let our experts guide you to books that will bless you as you read about spiritual disciplines, church history, systematic theology, family issues and more. Church Bulletin Mini-Reviews - Discerning Reader now offers short, discerning reviews suitable for placement in church bulletins. Bookworm Reviews - Discerning Reader has looked high and low to find other discerning book reviewers. Our "Bookworm" program features off-site reviews written by a wide variety of discerning reviewers. Check any of the titles in our database for these bookworm reviews. In the future, it looks like there might be the Discerning Viewer as well. Be sure to check out and bookmark the new Discerning Reader and check back as the site continues to be developed and expanded. Thank you Tim, for redeeming this wonderful idea and allowing it to be a great place for new and experienced readers alike to learn and grow in our relationship with God. It is without question that this tool will be an effective stimulous to press on in knowing the excellencies of Christ more. O that I might know Him . . .!
