Ketchup on My Reading

Carolyn (like "Bono") tagged me a while ago to respond to this survey. I'm finally getting around to it because I am an A-grade slacker. But then, you already knew that. I'll tag Dan Webster, Amena Brown, Kristi Reimer and Mike King.

One book that you have read more than once: Forgetting Ourselves on Purpose. I keep forgetting what it says . . .

One book that you would want on a desert island (besides the Bible): What to Eat on Desert Islands, and How to Eat It.

Book that made me laugh: Rush Limbaugh Is a Big Fat Idiot. (What was the question? Tee hee. I'll say Heretics by G. K. Chesterton.)

One book that made me cry: The Kryptonite Kid.

One book that I wish had been written: The sophomore release by Comic Book Character author David A. Zimmerman. Sigh.

One book I wish had never been written: I have no response to that.

Fact or fiction? I swing toward fact.

One book I am currently reading: Soul Searching: The Religious and Spiritual Lives of American Teenagers.

Awesome book that is empowering me: The Message of Samuel (The Bible Speaks Today).

Book I've been meaning to read: No Future Without Forgiveness by Desmond Tutu.

In my reading, I swing toward fact too... yet, I'm often amazed at how many choices I must make in my own "fact"-oriented writing... to keep it from becoming fiction. Makes me wonder how much fiction I'm actually getting in all my fact reads.

(Don Miller's "Tolkien Ain't No Hobbit" is a great discussion of this.)

Dave:

How 'bout Seth's book?

Heh, heh.

Unholy Madness. I never thought about it before, but what sort of meaning do you suppose a title like that conveys? The subtitle helps--"The Church's Surrender to Psychiatry"--but not by much. Now there's a book that made me cry . . .

Whoa! I was just catching up on your blog and realized I'd been tagged. I know I myself was a slacker and never responded to your other tag, but I'm going to this time. I'll keep you posted! (Ha ha.)

Also, let's start an Andy Crouch fan club. Or does one already exist? How do I join?
