Book Tag

I love these things. I have been tagged by Cubicle Reverend to participate in a meme.

1. Total number of books you own?

Unknown. We have books and bookshelves in every room of the house. There are piles and stacks of books all over my home study. And my church study has bookshelves along 3 of 4 walls.


2. What is the last book(s) you bought?

I utilize our local public library and inter-library loan system a lot. I'm actually trying to cut down my book purchases a little, because there's only so much space out there. But the last books I bought were:

- "God and the World" by Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger (now Pope Benedict XVI)
- A commentary on Colossians by Paul E. Deterding


3. What was the last book you read?

- "The Beardless Warriors" by Richard Matheson (a compelling WWII novel)
- "The Cases that Haunt Us" by John Douglas
- "Prozac Nation" by Elizabeth Wurtzel (about to finish)


4. List 5 books that are particularly meaningful to you (in no particular order):

a)
The Book of Concord (the Lutheran confessions of 1580)
b) The Chronicles of Narnia (actually 7 slim volumes) by C.S. Lewis
c) The Lord of the Rings (3 volumes) by J.R.R. Tolkien
d) The Fire and the Staff by Klemet Preus (a very enjoyable summary of Lutheran doctrine and practice)
e)
Citizen Soldier by Stephen Ambrose (I wanted to mention something non-fiction that was not a book of theology. And this is a fascinating study of the American G.I. of WWII.)


5. Tag five people, any five people who read:

Incarnatus Est

Jottings and Such

Beggars All

The Southern Conservative

Tales from the Dorkside

I appreciated your comments and encouragement. Out of all honesty I was planning on taking the easy route. Perhaps by passing my bachelors and going right for the m-div. Unfortunately I had to file for Chapter 13 a few years back, lost my job, and well am making enough money to pay my mortgage, and bankruptcy payment, and some how eat. You'd be amazed at how you can spread $5 for food over a week. Though I dont' think you should do grocery shopping at the dollar store. But in God's timing. I need to be patient.

And I down loaded the book of concord. It sits on my hard drive just begging to be printed. It really is a big book huh?

Take care. Have a good one.

Thanks for participating in the tag party (not stag party :-). I've got my list at Thought Renewal. Was a pastor in Ellwood City, PA for 7 years. So miss Western PA. Have a great week.

Hey, I don't know how this happened but somehow Darrell and I BOTH missed this post. We feel really awful that you tagged us, and then we didn't do it. It does feel nice to be tagged, though. However, both Darrell and I had previously done this meme before. Anyhow, sorry we missed this.
