Duke Professors Make Top 100
Observer Reporter

Books by two Duke University professors made it on Christianity Today magazine's list of the 100 most important religious books of the century.

"A Community of Character" by Stanley Hauerwas and "The Moral Vision of the New Testament" by Richard B. Hays were chosen in a survey of the magazine's contributors and church leaders. C.S. Lewis' "Mere Christianity" was deemed the most important book and other choices included "The Diary of Anne Frank" and J.R.R. Tolkien's "The Lord of the Rings."

The complete list from the April 24 issue is on the magazine's Web site at www.christianityonline.com/ct/2000/005/5.92.html

Note: Matthew here. If you're too lazy to visit the URL above, I can tell you here that "The Lord of the Rings" came in 4th on the list. Pretty neat.
