The One Book

Courtesy of Ryan Hall, our esteemed Anglican brother, I bring you a new survey.

1. One book that changed your life:
Desiring God by John Piper. Until then I didn’t really know what the point of being Christian was.

2. One book that you’ve read more than once:
Financial Peace by Dave Ramsey. The Gospel of personal finance.

3. One book you’d want on a desert island:
The Bible. This was a toughie, but the Word easily trumps anything in my library.

4. One book that made you laugh:
Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ’s Childhood Pal by Christopher Moore. Irreverent and flat-out hilarious.

5. One book that made you cry:
The Valley of Vision.

6. One book that you wish had been written:
I agree with Ryan, I wish Frank Herbert had lived to write the final novel of the Dune series.

7. One book that you wish had never been written:
Anything by Christian “fluff” authors. It might be okay for spiritual infants, but bad theology is bad theology, and I’d rather not have people getting led astray so young.

8. One book you’re currently reading:
The Secret Key to Heaven by Thomas Brooks

9. One book you’ve been meaning to read:
Whatever Happened to the Gospel of Grace? by James Montgomery Boice

10. One book you haven’t finished but will finish in the next month:
The Mystery of Providence by John Flavel
