On this episode of This vs. That, we are joined by Walter Shaw, a prolific reader and book reviewer who runs the WTS Reads account on Instagram.

In our conversation with Walter, we explore the topic of readers versus non-readers and delve into the value of reading good books in our hyper-stimulated, fast-paced online culture. We discuss how reading shapes our minds and hearts, its role in our growth as Christians, and how to incorporate more reading into our lives.

Walter shares the story of how WTS Reads got started and offers practical advice for those who may not naturally enjoy reading.

We also touch on the impact of digital technology on our attention spans and ways to cultivate a habit of reading in a world filled with distractions.

Join us as we explore the transformative power of reading and its potential to shape us into the image of Christ.
