From the Metaphysical Pluralist

1. One book that changed your life:  The God Who Is There – Francis Schaeffer

2. One book that you’ve read more than once:  Time and Eternity by Brian Leftow.

3. One book you’d want on a desert island:  Sadly, I can’t decide between the US Navy Survival Guide and Aquinas’ Summa Theologica

4. One book that made you laugh:  Beyond Belief: The Secret Gospel of Thomas—Elaine Pagels.  Although that was not her intent. 

5. One book that made you cry: The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein.  This short children’s story didn’t make me cry but it made me sad.

6. One book that you wish had been written:  The Reconciliation of Divine Foreknowledge and Human Freedom—Jesus of Nazareth.

7. One book that you wish had never been written:  The Metaphor of God Incarnate, John Hick. 

8. One book you’re currently reading:  The Guitar Handbook by Ralph Denyer.  Picked it up the other day to figure out what the heck an F#7#9#11 chord looked like, but now I can’t put it down. 

9. One book you’ve been meaning to read:  The His Dark Materials trilogy by Philip Pullman 

10. Now tag five people:  Keith, Clint.
