Richard Baxter’s  Thoughts on Reading

“Make careful choice of the books which you read. Let the holy Scriptures ever have the pre–eminence; and, next [to] them, the solid, lively, heavenly treatises, which best expound and apply the Scriptures; and next [to] those, the credible histories, especially of the church…but take heed of the poison of the writings of false teachers, which would corrupt your understandings.”
