Resources for digging deeper

The resources provided are to help you dig deeper in areas we have introduced at Lafayette. Remember to read critically rather than just accepting the material as the final word. Approach reading and listening as you approach eating fish: eat the meat, spit out the bones. I hope processing this material will help you put down deeper roots in the faith. — Bob Clark
