We should be just as ready to read devout simple books as deep and learned ones. You must not take offence at the writer's lack of learning and question his authority, but read the book from love of simple truth. Do not ask who it was who wrote it, but what it was he wrote. Men pass away but the Lord remains faithful to his word for ever. God uses all kinds of ways to speak to us, and he makes no distinction between man and man."V - On reading holy scriptures" :: The Imitation of Christ by Thomas A Kempis
I, for one, love simple truth! Let's get away from the cult of personality and focus on what's being said.
