The one book meme

Benjamin Meyers at faith and theology has started what he calls the one book meme
I’ve sometimes wondered how these blogging memes originate — so I thought I’d try to start one myself. If you’d like to participate, just post your own responses to these questions and tag five people. Welcome to the One Book Meme!

Bible
On Being a Christian, Hans Kung

2. One book that you’ve read more than once:
Abba's Child: The Cry of the Heart for Intimate Belonging, Brennan Manning

3. One book you’d want on a desert island:

4. One book that made you laugh:
I'm not sure when I last read a book that made me laugh - that's sad!

5. One book that made you cry:
The City of Joy, Dominique LaPierre

All Families Are Psychotic, Douglas Coupland. I think I laughed. If I didn’t, I meant to.

6. One book that you wish had been written:
