I know, I have no excuse for not reading Willard.
I'll read it, if you read Mere Discipleship.

Since I don't have a blog I'll put my answers here:

1. One book that changed your life: The Spirit of the Disciplines, Dallas Willard. I believe that Divine Conspiracy and Renovation of the HEart are probably better, but it was this book that changed me spiritually.

2. One book that you've read more than once: Pain, The Gift Nobody Wants, by Paul Brand and Phillip Yancey. An amazing book by an amazing Christian.

3. Desert Island book: the Bible, Chronicle of Narnia, Lord of the Rings.

4. Book that made you laugh: this is sad, but I can't think of one right now.

5. Book that made you cry: Heaven, by Randy Alcorn

6. Book wish had been written: Len Scott, A Complete Owner's Manual And Repair Guide.

7. Book you wish had never been written: anything Left Behind. These books may have done more damage to Christianity than anything written in the last 30 years.

8. Currently reading: Plan B, Anne Lamott; Renovation of the Heart, Willard; The Rest of God, Buchanan

9. Book been meaning to read: Simply Christian.
