One Book...

I saw this on Scot McKnight's site and decided to play along. I will not include the Bible because that would be the answer to most of these questions.

1. One book that changed your life: D. Bonhoeffer, The Cost of Discipleship. I read this a few years ago on a trip to Brazil. I rank him up there with the Apostle Paul when it comes to indepth writing.

2. One book that you’ve read more than once: C.S. Lewis, Narnia Chronicles. Each book is a classic.

3. One book you’d want on a desert island: Tolkien, The Hobbit. Has always been my favorite book of the Middle Earth series.

4. One book that made you laugh: Anything by P.G. Wodehouse, especially the Jeeves and Wooster stories.

5. One book that made you cry: Something for Joey. I can't remember who wrote it but it is about John Cappaletti who played football for Penn State and his youngest brother was dying of cancer.

6. One book you wish you had written: The Foundation Series by Asimov.

7. One book you wish had never been written: A. Hitler, Mein Kampf. The mind of demented soul. (This was Scot's choice and I can't think of anything else.)

8. One book you’re currently reading: E. Wiesel, The Night Trilogy. There is a powerful forward to this book by a French Christian. Too bad there aren't more Frenchmen who believe as he does.

9. One book you’ve been meaning to read: Wild at Heart by John Eldredge.
