St. Augustine once admitted in his “Confessions” that “I had no love for reading books and hated being forced to study them. Yet pressure was put on me and was good for me. It was not of my own inclination that I did well, for I learnt nothing unless compelled.”
O how true! Reading theology was once a torture for me years ago as I was compelled to study them; and indeed if I had not been compelled, I would have learned nothing.” What was once a torture had laid a foundation for me, and now I enjoy reading theology and appreciate it.
