Book Tag
I've been tagged by my bro and sis at Theomony so here goes:

1. How many books do you own?

Hundreds... mostly theology,
sci-fi, travel or dog-care books. That said, many of my books have been thoroughly tasted by Max. He has in fact eaten through parts of Charles Hodge's Systematic Theology third volume as well as my old NASB and even some Doug Wilson books. (Good dog! ;) ) I try and trade my old books in for credit at a local used book store.

2. What was the last book you bought?
I was given a copy of The ShadowFox Chronicles by the author, Julie Staples, as to what book I last bought... that would probably have been Christian Apologetics by Cornelius Van Til, along with The Calvinistic Concept of Culture by Cornelius' nephew Henry Van Til. I've not read much of the second book.

3. What was the last book you read?
Christian Apologetics by Cornelius Van Til.
Currently reading
The ShadowFox Chronicles

4. What are some books that meant a lot to you?

Commentary on Galatians - Martin Luther
Luther's exposition of the Gospel vs Legalism is still the standard, no matter what my FV friends say.

Starship Troopers - Robert Heinlein
Prior to reading this novel I was interested in Japanese animation, especially of the giant robot type. Heinlein's classic seems to have been the inspiration for much of that, especially the older Gundam series. I've owned a copy of this book since I first read it.

Ender's Game - Orson Scott Card
The little guy does good... sort of. Classic Sci-Fi book by the Mormon author, Card. The other books in this series were not as good (in my opinion.)

Movie due out 2006?

Rabbit (? not sure) - not sure of author
When I was a child, my favorite book was this wordless book about a rabbit and a carrot. I've dreamt of the images in that book and yet cannot remember the title or author.
