I want my recent posts on my front page to only show a certain number of lines, then I would like readers to have to click to view the entire post. I have looked through every setting and cannot find if and where I can change this. Can anyone help?

There's an easy command to make this possible, called More. You can read all about how it works and how to use it here.
You can also make use of excerpts. When creating a post, type in a few lines (a teaser, perhaps?) into the excerpt field.
Then in wp-admin, goto: Settings -> Reading Settings and change "For each article in a feed, show" to "Summary"
Now all your posts show excerpts instead of the full text. :-)
a) Only a few themes support excerpts on the blog front - see here:
b) That option in Settings>Reading has nothing to do with the actual blog page.
