That Book Meme

I've been tagged by Chris Petersen for Ben Meyer's book meme, so here goes:

1. One book that changed your life:
Holy Blood and Holy Grail, Baigent, Lincoln and Leigh (as painful as that is to acknowledge--the first Biblical Studies related book I read)

2. One book that you’ve read more than once:
Jesus and Judaism, E P Sanders

3. One book you’d want on a desert island:
Survive on a Desert Island, Claire Llewellyn

4. One book that made you laugh:
The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Douglas Adams

5. One book that made you cry:
Of Mice and Men, John Steinbeck

6. One book that you wish had been written:
My Autobiography, Jesus

7. One book that you wish had never been written:
The World's Sixteen Crucified Saviors, Kersey Graves

8. One book you’re currently reading:
Dictionary of Paul and His Letters/a Compendium of Contemporary Biblical Scholarship, Gerald F. Hawthorne, Ralph P. Martin, Daniel G. Reid

9. One book you’ve been meaning to read:
Life of Jesus Critically Examined, David Strauss (I know, I know. I just never get to it).

10: One book you wish you had written (this one seems to appear on some lists, and not on others--it's not on Meyer's original list)
Paul and Palestinian Judaism, E P Sanders

11. Tag five people
Chris Weimer, Kevin Rosero, Matthew Hopper, Stephen C. Carlson and the next blogger to read this who hasn't put a response up.
