Books I’m Most Proud to Have on My Shelf

Yesterday, view I posted the most embarrassing books on my bookshelf. Today, stuff here is a few of the books that I am most proud:


Someone very special got me the entire Church Dogmatics for Christmas. They take up an entire shelf all on their own. They will come in very handy when I take “Theology of Barth” this January.


I managed to pick up the TDNT really cheap off of Christianbook.com a couple of years ago. They fill one whole shelf by themselves.


This book best displays my warped sense of humour. My favourite scene is when Marvin manages to disable the enemy fleet, by making them so depressed that they commit suicide. No matter how many times I read it, that scene always make me laugh out loud.


And of course, no bookshelf should be without this awesome, awesome, awesome book. Of course, I could be biased, but that doesn’t matter, I’m still right.
