I don't know if you've noticed or not, but I haven't been posting regularly. I really don't have a reason for not posting, just excuses.
Excuse #1 I'm a busy man.
Excuse#2 I've been away, which means I had a lot of catching up to do when I got back.
Excuse#3 I'm a lazy man. Hey! maybe that's a reason.
Excuse#4 I'm not a smart man. I have great difficulty with expressing my thoughts in writing. For example, I've been trying to write a post on Luke 13:23 for a while now, and it still doesn't read right.
But anyway, to my surprise, while I was bouncing along in slacker heaven, I got tagged! Good ol' Terry Stauffer, of NEW LUMPS fame, put the 'hit' on me.
Ordinarily, it wouldn't be a problem for me to answer these questions about books since I recently did a post on books and reading. However, after reading Terry's answers to these questions, I'm a little embarrased by my light -weight (by comparrison) responses. I guess Canadians are deep thinkers (with the obvious exception of Bugblaster).
O.K. Enough whining. Here are my resposes:
1.One book that changed your life:
Early in my Christian life, I was greatly influinced by A.W. Tozer, E.M.Bounds, and Leonard Ravenhill. However, I would have to say that DON'T WASTE YOUR LIFE by John Piper, is currently having a great impact on my life. The more I read it, the more I am convicted and motivated .
2.One book that you've read more than once:
THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO JESUS by John MacArthur.
3.One book that you'd want on a deserted island:
Since it's a deserted island, Let's Go Soul Winning by Jack Hyles is out of the running. If I had to choose one book only, it would have to be a Bible. If I had to choose only one book besides the Bible, it would probably be STUDIES IN THE SERMON ON THE MOUNT by D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones.
4.One book that made you laugh:
WHAT LOVE IS THIS by Dave Hunt, because it was given to me by a pastor who had invited me to preach a revival in his church. He gave me the book just before I went to the pulpit on the 2nd night of the meeting.
5.One book that made you cry:
WHAT LOVE IS THIS by Dave Hunt for the same reason listed above and for it's content.
6.One book that you wish had been written:
A SURE-FIRE WAY TO MAKE PEOPLE BE FAITHFUL IN CHURCH ATTENDANCE by Anybody Jones.
7.One book you wish had never been written:
Can I say the same one again? WHAT LOVE IS THIS.
8.One book that you are currently reading:
GETTING THINGS DONE by David Allen. This book arrived by mail yesterday from my son Steve. I started reading it immediately. It looks like it's going to be very helpful. Hopefully it'll hep me git stuff did.
One book that you've been meaning to read:
THE WORKS OF HENRY SCOUGAL by Henry Scougal.
