They talk about their experiences with spiritual reading, how it has affected them, and why it is important for all of us to read spiritual books. And they offer some suggestions on what to read.

Beth and Kristofer talk about their strategies for getting through these spiritual books. Through a group or with the help of a spiritual director they have been able to learn more about God and the Church and, most importantly, their relationships with Jesus with this help.
