It’s summer, a time when most preachers are lucky enough to enjoy an extended Sabbath. For me, summer affords the opportunity to do the kind of reading I know I need to do but am not able to get to in the midst of the normal schedule. I save major works to take with me on summer vacation.
But what to take? If you are traveling by air, the weight limits are significant. The limit for luggage is 50 pounds, and I can testify that packing enough books to last several weeks can bring you dangerously close to the limit. You can get away with one 700-page tome, but probably not two.
