This is a common error of our day of Mysticism, existentialism, and what not. Its also a very unbiblical position. We have much to learn from those of the past, and many great Bible tecahers these days such as John MacArthur, David Jeremiah, Ravi Zacharias, and other love books. Ravi said in a book that I own that books are his gold mine, and he highly advocates Christians to build their libraries. Friends the word of God is complex and there is a reason God have gifted us with the thousands of books, journals, and study aids out there. Sure once needs to have discernment on what they read, hear, or observe. However books, and MP3's greatly help us.
