Another Book Meme

My friend David Horstkoetter recently tagged me with another one of those pesky meme’s. But this one’s simple, and in an attempt to distract whatever readers I might have from my conspicuous absence from substantial blogging in the last week, here you go.

How many books do you own?: Last time I counted around 1,200.

Last book I read: The Work of God Goes On by Gerhard Lohfink

Five Books That Mean a Lot to Me: (In no particular order)

Alan Lewis, Between Cross and Resurrection
Lesslie Newbigin, The Gospel in a Pluralist Soceity
John Howard Yoder, The Politics of Jesus
Stanley Hauerwas, The Peaceable Kingdom
Rowan Williams, Resurrection

And now to tag five people: Whatever. If you read this consider yourself “tagged”.

    I believe it comes from the second volume of his Systematic theology. And it’s the last page thereof.

    Jenson recently “coauthored” a book with his eight year old granddaughter. It looks interesting.
