Should you read heretical books?

I am critical of many aspects of Mark Driscoll and his ministry, as those who follow my blog will know. Yet, I have nothing against him as a person, and indeed sometimes Driscoll does give rather good answers to various questions.

In this video, Driscoll gave an excellent answer regarding the reading of various Christian and "Christian" books. Christians should not be getting all the latest Christian books in a quest to "broaden your mind". Understand your Bible and sound doctrine first and foremost, looking for sound orthodox books to complement your spiritual diet. ONLY if you are called to teach and minister to others should you read other books for research purposes, and that only.
