In 2015, Mark Oppenheimer profiled in the New York Times a unique bookstore in Witchita, Eight Day Books, and its owner and curator, Warren Farha. Warren has curated some 25,000 “Classics in Religion, Philosophy, History & Literature.”
The profile conclude thus:
I wondered if he considered the store a form of evangelism. “Is it a Christian mission?” I asked.
He thought for a while. Eventually, he decided.
“It’s not a mission,” he said. “I just think by definition, if you have books that articulate truth, that it’s going to be a de facto Christian mission, because I don’t think you can separate different truths from each other. They’re all connected.”
Too few people understand that.
