Hi, after recently becoming interested in Christianity I’ve began reading the bible. I’ve been having a highly enjoyable time and have had an experience which is helping to confirm that I am on the right path.
Currently, I am reading through the bible quite quickly to gather the basic messages of the bible, rather than studying it deeply. I’ve read through the Gospels of Mark and John and through Acts and Romans and have started on Matthew. Along side my reading, I have watched a handful of documentaries about the history of the bible, the church and about Jesus’ life which are helping me put everything into context a little more easily.
However, I would like to read some works about Christianity that aren’t of the bible but are about the bible or living as a Christian and the philosophies of Christianity. Perhaps by Saints or Popes or someone. I just don’t know where to begin other than The Confessions of St Augustine - Which might not be a great place to start?. I don’t know of any truly religious people who could offer some guidance, so here I am.
Any thoughts? Also, sorry if this isn’t the correct forum. A little new here and unsure of where questions should go.
