Recently, Ken Brown at the C. Orthodoxy blog issued a challenge to bibliobloggers:
Name the five books (or scholars) that had the most immediate and lasting influence on how you read the Bible.
Unlike many challenges, this one struck a chord, and a significant number of bloggers responded. And their choices can be found here.
This is a terrific opportunity to meet new bibliobloggers and add several book titles to your "wish list." I think you'll also find interesting the comments the bloggers made about their selected books. There was passion and a sense of gratitude for their encounter with each work.
I'll start thinking now about my Top 5. Why don't you do the same, and we'll compare our lists in a future post.
