Reading Recommendations 

Tony Reinke comments in his book 12 Ways Your Phone Is Changing You that we need times of solitude for many reasons, one being the opportunity to prepare ourselves to come to conversation with something meaningful to discuss. In an effort to encourage increasingly fruitful use of solitude and to foster even more edifying conversations, Christ Church Knoxville has put together a list of recommended reading for 2018.
