Weekend Reader Survey

8/03/2007

I'd like to implement a new feature: the weekend survey. The thing about a blog is that you only get to listen to me run my mouth. Well, I want to hear from you and get to know you better. So here is the weekend survey question:

If you could only own one book other than the Bible, what would it be?

Post a comment as a response.

Arnold Dallimore's two volume Banner of Truth biography on George Whitefield.
Whitefield painted a picture of how to live a godly life, how to preach Christ alone, how to suffer, how to love your enemies and how theology (good theology!) should dictate our actions.
[But Pilgrim's Progress, Foxe's Book of Martyr's, Scougal's Life of God in the Soul of Man, Matthew Henry's Pleasantness of a Religious Life and Rev. John Baird's Nearer Heaven all come in a close second!]

The Enemy Within by Kris Lundgaard. Yes, there are more thorough examinations of Owen out there, but this one seems to get to the heart (through the head) most efficiently.

Paul,

Dallimore's book is two volumes! You can only take half the book...

You mean after all that typing and trying to slip in 17 books into one category you reduce me to half a work?
That's it.
I'm telling your father.

Morning and Evening by Spurgeon. I need a book that is going to lift up my soul while being honest about my sin, and Spurgeon does that brilliantly. Plus, 730 verses about various subjects along with Spurgeon's meditiation on those verses would be an amazing resource. Spurgeon's writings are very meditative in nature, and if I'm only going to have one book, I want a book that is going to help me meditate on the Bible.

Good thing you didn't ask for best 7 books - Paul would have had 49...I suppose if I were stuck on a desert island I might choose The Providence of God by Flavel. Hopefully, I would be encouraged that I wasn't there by accident.
