I did this same quiz back in August of 2006, and I was just wondering if my answers had changed since then. Here’s the old version.

One book that changed your life: As my recent post supported, I would say A Prayer for Owen Meany by John Irving. A) Irving wrote about Jesus positively in popular fiction, which is not what you usually expect. B) I realized a very crafted novel, not something just train of thought and written emotionally, can have an amazing impact. I still wish I could write with this sort of intent.

One book you have read more than once: Echoes by Robin Jones Gunn. My favorite sweet, clean, Christian romance.


One book you would want on a desert island: the devotional book My Utmost for His Highest by Oswald Chambers, because no matter how many times I read something it always seems to say something different.

One book that made you laugh: Stop Dressing Your Six-Year-Old Like a Skankby Celia Rivenbark. It was snort-milk-out-your-nose funny.

One book you wish had never been written: I’m still voting for Moby Dick. I maintain I have not read a book worse than it.

One book that made you cry: Recently, Owen Meany yet again, and A Thousand Tomorrows by Karen Kingsbury. Yeah, I can’t count to one, so sue me.

One book you are currently reading: Man: The Dwelling Place of God by A.W. Tozer (slowly but surely). I just finished a book last night so I haven’t cracked open anything else.

One book you have been meaning to read: Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen. And the other 150 books on my To-Be-Read bookcase.

One book you wish everyone would read, and why: Do You Believe? by Antonio Monda. I think it’s incredibly important for Christians to understand how our culture thinks of God, Jesus, and Christianity. I found this book fascinating.
