I love books, the feel, the smell, even the taste. I do read books on an ereader as well and listen but there is nothing compared to a paper paged book. So I am asking this question. If you could only recommend five books to someone, what would they be? (I am willing to give one of those slots to a series of books but I want you to push yourselves and really think about this.) Also, what are books you like to revisit? I revisit the Harry Potter Series often and am considering the Narnia Series again… I love, LOVE, The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe.We mention: Lament for a Son by Nicholas Wolterstorff The Accidental Anglican by Todd D. HunterLiving Into Community by Christine D. PohlPracticing Christian Doctrine by Beth Felker Jones The King Jesus Gospel by Scot McKnightOneself As Another by Paul Ricoeur Rediscovering the Triune God by Stanley J.
