Tagged again

Bryan tagged me and asked me about my reading habits.

1. One book that changed my life: John H. Walton’s Genesis NIVAC commentary.  I picked Wheaton because of his approach to the OT.

2. One book that I read more than once: Lord of the Flies.  I read it several times for an English class at WNCC in Nebraska.  Fantastic story.   Are we really that messed up?

3.  One book that you’d want a desert island: The Bible.   I know that it’s a SS answer, but sorry, I can’t help it.

4.  One book that made you laugh: Blue like Jazz.  Enough said.

5.  One book that made you cry: The Brothers Karamazov.   

6.  One book that you wish that you had written: anything by Flannery O’Connor or Graham Greene.

7. One book that you wish had never been written: Something written by Marx or Hitler.

8. One book you’re currently reading: Biblical Hebrew by Allen Ross.  I know, boring.

9. One book you’ve been meaning to read: The Great Gatsby. 

10. Now tag five people:  I like being it.

    Man, Walton’s commentary is great. That is one of the most enjoyable books I’ve read. Can’t say I’ve read anything else you have on this list except Lord of the Flies and Blue Like Jazz (which I really liked)

    Do you read much fiction?

    Not at all, but I just started Animal Farm and I’m hoping to start reading more literature.

    Sweet.

    I try to read some classic literature on a regular basis, ’cause otherwise I just read nonfiction.

    Story is really a powerful tool. I often find stories as more convincing arguments for God’s existence than anything that some philosopher has put to page,
