What is the most influential book you have read besides the Bible? Why?
The most influential book I have read beside Gods Word was Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury. This book gave me a clear understanding of how different our work would be today without literature in our lives, and how literature is a key tool to unlocking knowledge, self-worth, and motivation in one’s life and it shows the gravity behind that ability.
