Every Wednesday I’ll post a question related to books or reading. Just answer the question in the comments or post the link to your blog post where you copied the question and answered it.
Today’s Question: If you could force everyone you know to read one book, other than the Bible or any other book that is considered a holy text by any other religion, what would it be? And just to make it a little easier… you can choose one fiction and one non-fiction.
Fiction – Black by Ted Dekker
Non-Fiction – Mere Christianity by C. S. Lewis

This is the first time I have commented on your blog. I found it by looking up tags. The ficton book I would force people to read is a collection of books. The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis. Amazing books.
Well, I suppose if you give them the all-in-one book then technically it IS one book. 🙂 Great series! Thanks for sharing.
Hmmm… That’s a REALLY good question. Last time I did an inventory of my books, I had over 800. So… Which ones would I think everyone should HAVE to read besides the Bible? How about the Strong’s Concordance? LOL.
Let me get up and go take a gander at my library/office…
I’m tied between two non-fiction books: ANGELOLOGY by Danielle Trussoni and EXILE by Richard North Patterson. I suppose, if I’m forced to choose, it would be ANGELOLOGY because the first half of the book touches upon a subject I wish more people had knowledge of.
Nonfiction: ON DEATH AND DYING by Dr. Elisabeth Kübler-Ross. Either that or PHILOSOPHY OF LAW by Feinberg. I would assume, however, that most people would take away more from ON DEATH AND DYING.
Wow… I wish I had the room to keep all those books. I’d probably have that many too if I had the space. I end up having to give books away, though I find a place for the ones I really love. 🙂
Angelology is an interesting title. I’ll have to look that one up.
