I hate Freakin' Book Memes

I can’t help myself. I saw my name get tagged & I had to do it.
1. One book that changed your life:
Compelling Reason by C.S. Lewis. It really pushed me to look “along the beam” rather than just “at the beam”.
2. One book that you’ve read more than once:
At the risk of starting a bit of a theme here, I would have to say “Poems” by C.S. Lewis. I read this bad boy perpetually.
3. One book you’d want on a desert island:
You sound trite saying the Bible, so if I had to pick something else I would possibly go for Karl Barth’s “Church Dogmatics”. I think there would be a lot to consider & a little to disagree with.
4. One book that made you laugh:
“Last Chance to See” by Douglas Adams. It’s the writer of “Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy”, spending a year travelling to different World Wildlife Foundation spots. Thoughful, but very funny!
5. One book that made you cry:
“Lonesome Dove” by Larry McMurtry. OK, that is woeful to admit, but I teared up in both the book AND the movie!
6. One book that you wish had been written:
Right now I would settle for “Who the Servant is really supposed to be in Isaiah 40-55 & whether or not I was an 8th Century Prophet, or a 6th Century Prophet” by Isaiah (or possibly Deutero Isaiah*)
7. One book that you wish had never been written:
I don’t know if I could pick one. Crap literature exists to point out to people how important good stuff is. It makes me sad to think of people who are mislead by Davinci kind of stuff.
8. One book you’re currently reading:
“Resurrection: Myth or Reality” by John Shelby Spong (for an assignment),
9. One book you’ve been meaning to read:
“The Epistle to the Romans” commentary by Douglas Moo is one I wouldn’t mind knocking off.
10. Now tag five people:
OK. I can’t be bothered adding people’s links here. I’ll go for Kristin , Ads, Josh T, Coqui & Justin Moffatt.
* So what do you think? Isaiah, or Deutero? Any Trito fans here?
