Tagged for Christian Books
Richard of Richard's Ramblings has tagged me to identify the ten Christian books I would take with me onto a desert island. Well, here goes:
1. The Oxford Study Bible in its RSV edition, with Apocrypha.
2. Nestle-Aland, Novum Testamentum Graece, 27th Edition.
3. Irenaeus, Against Heresies
4. Athanasius, On the Incarnation of the Word
5. Augustine, Confessions
6. Anselm, Cur Deus Homo?
7. C. S. Lewis, The Great Divorce
8. Alexander Schmemann, For the Life of the World
9. The Catechism of the Catholic Church
10. Michael D. O'Brien, Father Elijah: An Apocalypse
If I were "spotted" my Greek and English Bibles, I think I would replace them with a copy of the Apostolic Fathers (Greek and English) and William Law's A Serious Call to a Devout and Holy Life.
Again, since I have already tagged the folks I would tag this time, I am going to hold off on tagging anyone. I hope this doesn't bring some sort of curse down on me!
PS--On second thought, if Father Peregrinator or Father Nelson cared to comment, I would enjoy seeing their lists. But no official "tag." No pressure, gentlemen.
