Desert Island Books: Dennis Johnson

Imagine yourself on a beautiful desert island. You've unplugged from the digital world. No cellphone, no twitter, no facebook, no radio, and no tv. With you on the island you have your Bible. In addition, you can only take with you five books. Which five books would you choose and why?

In this episode Office Hours talks to Dr. Dennis Johnson, Professor of Practical Theology, to find out which five books he would take with him to the desert island.

Dr. Johnson's selection:

  1. Concise Theology by J.I. Packer
  2. Unfolding Mystery: Discovering Christ in the Old Testament by Edmund Clowney
  3. The Valley of Vision: A Collection of Puritan Prayers and Devotions by Arthur Bennett
  4. The Complete English Poems by George Herbert
  5. The Lord of the Rings (set) by J.R.R. Tolkien
