Ideas may have consequences, as Richard Weaver remarked, but people change cultures. The Blackstone Legal Fellowship promotes this by providing numerous reading resources. These resources are selected with an eye not toward simply buying books, but rather toward building libraries. As you seek to obey the greatest commandment, loving the Lord your God with your entire mind (Matt 22:37), Alliance Defending Freedom encourages you to cultivate a learner’s attitude.
