"The Preachers chiefly shall take heed that they teach nothing in their preaching, which they would have the people religiously to observe and believe, but that which is agreeable to the Doctrine of the Old Testament and the New, and that which the Catholick Fathers and Ancient Bishops have gathered out of that Doctrine." A proposed canon of Elizabeth I, 1571

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.

That looks more like a tropical paradise than a desert island there!

One couldn't really concentrate on one's books unless there was proper shade to recline under, could one? Best wishes for a spiritually enriching Ash Wednesday, my friend.
