I did this last year. It was one of the studies of the scriptures by CT Russell. I read about half of it, but then got fed up reading it and put it back about 2 months later. It was sitting on my book shelf at home during that time.
The reason I didn't ask any elders if I could have a lend of it was because they would likely be wondering why I am wanting to read old light.
The book was quite interesting in that it was promoting the idea that other churches could use the book to upbuild their congregations. CT Russell seemed to be a bit more inclusive of other Christian faiths.
