The Vast Bounty to be Enjoyed in Older Books

We contemporary Christians tend to try to satisfy our spiritual and intellectual palates with such coarse fare as may be offered at the local Christian bookstore, or on the "religion" shelf at the chain book outlet, all the while neglecting the vast bounty in our own churchly heritage that would supply far more in the way of solid food for the mature.
[From the Introduction to Reading Augustine: A Guide to the Confessions by Jason Byassee 

We need a balanced diet even in our reading; dont' we?
