The Library is a Wonderful Place II

Its Thursday morning of finals week, and I only have one paper left to go. Over the last two weeks, I’ve written 70 pages for papers and read or researched upwards of 1,000 pages. God has been gracious, ordering my thoughts and making my study time very profitable. It is hard to complain when God’s grace is so readily apparent.

The discussion in Pastoral Ministries class turned to books a few days ago. Rick Holland said, “You become what you read.” The point being, be careful what books you immerse yourself in, for they will affect you more than you think. I came upon this little list of nine questions  about a year ago, and I’ve found it helpful to periodically answer them. This helps me remember content of books I’ve read, and refreshes my desire to read. For last year’s list, click here.

  1. One book that changed your life:  Humility(C.J. Mahaney)

  2. One book that you’ve read more than once: Chosen by God (RC Sproul)

  3. One book you’d want on a desert island: The Swiss Family Robinson (Johann Wyss)

  4. One book that made you laugh: All Creatures Great and Small (James Herriot)

  5. One book that made you cry: Foxe’s Book of Martyrs (Foxe)

  6. One book you wish had been written: Art, Beauty, and the Reformed Mind (Dr. Greg Behle)

  7. One book you wish had never been written: The Book of Mormon

  8. One book you’re currently reading: The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe (C.S. Lewis)

  9. One book you’ve been meaning to read: The Reformed Pastor (Richard Baxter) and Desiring God (John Piper)
