If you were stranded on a desert island... what few books would you wish had with you?

I recently asked this question of fellow bibliophile Sarah Reinhard, a guest on episode 11 of Among Women, being published on June 9, 2009. While there are many more we could have added, (with the Bible being a 'given').... here are our wish lists:

From Sarah:

Theology of the Body by Christopher West
Man and Woman He Created Them by John Paul II, translation by Michael Waldstein
The Screwtape Letters by C.S. Lewis
The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkein

From Pat:
Life of the Beloved by Henri Nouwen
The Return of the Prodigal Son by Henri Nouwen
Confessions by St. Augustine
Introduction to the Devout Life by St. Francis de Sales

and, Sarah and I both concur, that we'd both desire a copy of True Devotion to Mary by St. Louis de Montfort.

  • Yeah, and you know, I'm pretty sure I'd need a LIBRARY on that desert island, Pat. I mean, looking at those book choices now, and in light of some recent reading I've done, I'd add Father Elijah to the list. Oh, and Confessions. Oh, and, well, about 50 others, at least. :)

    Thanks for a great discussion!
