Meme on Books

Being the victim to fashion and peer pressure that I am, I have added my own two cents to the recent 'meme' of books that have influenced me. I have also resisted the temptation to name the Bible in any of the below:

1. One book that changed your life:

N.T. Wright, Jesus and the Victory of God.

2. One book that you’ve read more than once:

Mark A. Seifrid, Christ, our Righteousness.

3. One book you’d want on a desert island:

The Complete Works of Shakespeare and NT Diglot

4. One book that made you laugh:

Brother Biddle (can't remember the author, it's a comic strip about a presbyterian pastor, absolutely hillarious).

5. One book that made you cry:

Cry? Me? Never? Well, accept with Bruce Longenecker, The Letter's of Pergamum. I love you Antipas!

6. One book that you wish had been written:

Q !!!

7. One book that you wish had never been written:

The Left Behind Series

8. One book you’re currently reading:

Todd Penner, In Praise of Christian Origins.

9. One book you’ve been meaning to read:

Karl Barth, Evangelical Theology (just finished it too)

10: One book you wish you had written:

Dan Brown, The Da Vinci Code (With the money I made I could have gone on the mother-of-all sabbaticals, bought my college, relocated it to Brisbane Australia, and have the board make me "Chancellor-for-life" and spent the rest of my life writing massive tomes on Jesus, Paul, John and James).

I laughed out loud when I read number 6. (And I was the only one in the room)

So does #6 mean you don't think Q was written? But that you wish it had been?...
