One Book Meme

Ben Meyers has started a one book meme (here) that is being duplicated around the blogosphere. Be sure to read the lists on Ben's comments pages as well as Chris Tilling, Jim West, and Kyle Potter's lists. Here is my own contribution:

1. One book that changed your life:
Bart Ehrman's "Introduction to the New Testament" (this work stimulated my interest in NT studies)

2. One book that you've read more than once:
N.T. Wright's "Resurrection of the Son of God."

3. One book that you'd want on a desert island:
John Meier's "A Marginal Jew" work (yes, I know that's technically more than one book).

4. One book that made you laugh:
"Wizard's First Rule"

5. One book that made you cry:
"Lord of the Rings"

6. One book that you wish you had written:
Dale C. Allison's "The End of the Ages Has Come"

7. One book that you wish had never been written:
Anything promoting fundamentalist pre-dispensationalism

8. One book you are currently reading:
Brevard S. Childs' "Biblical Theology of the Old and New Testaments".

9. One book that you've been meaning to read:
"The Count of Monte Cristo (unabridged version)

10. One book that you wish had been written:
Jesus' autobiographical reflections.

11. Tag five people:
I tag Q, Loren, Rick Sumner, Derek, and Sven.

I enjoyed Wright's ROSOG too, but i think the impact from JVG was so strong that the third instalment seemed overshadowed.

I've read, and am still reading, JVG over and over again. Damn good stuff. ;>)
