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