In one of my daughters' favorite books Dr. Seuss tells us, "The more you read, the more things you will know."
True. Reading is thinking is learning — and there are "mountains of treasures waiting to be mined." But this doesn't mean the books we read have to be long. As Pastor John explains,
What I have learned from [years] of serious reading is this. It is sentences that change my life, not books. What changes my life is some new glimpse of truth, some powerful challenge, some resolution to a long-standing dilemma, and these usually come concentrated in a sentence or two. (Quantitative Hopelessness and the Immeasurable Moment)
And sometimes this "sentence or two" is found in a short book. In fact, there's quite a collection of short books that are chocked full of insight. So we compiled a list: 12 books less than 150 pages that we think are some of the best short books out there. These books are small, but the hope is that you'll come away from them having learned a great deal.
