Top Ten book on my shelf

Since so many of the blogs I read have done a top ten book list for various subjects, I thought I'd do one of my own. But on a slightly different note, I'll give the top ten from my book shelf that if I had to choose between all of them, these are the ones I would keep. So if I was going overseas for instance, and I was on an extemely tight bugdet, heres what I would take:
  • The New Testament and the People of God by N.T. Wright
  • Jesus and the Victory of God by N.T. Wright
  • The Dead Sea Scrolls by Wise, Abegg & Cook
  • Jewish Life and Thought Among Greeks and Romans edited by Feldman & Reinhold
  • The Jesus Movement: A Social History of its First Century by Stegemann & Stegeman
  • The Parables of Jesus by David Wenham
  • Old Testament Theology, Volume One: Israel's Gospel by John Goldingay
  • The Theology of the Book of Revelation by Richard Bauckham
  • Models for Interpretation of Scripture by John Goldingay
  • New Horizens in Hermeneutics by Anthony Thiselton
I have listed some primary sources here that I do not read as much as I should. But I figure that if I put them on this list, then it will put my mind in perspective. I unfortunately dont have a copy of either the NT Apochripha or the OT Pseudepigrapha.

Hi there, nice blog, I am student at Fuller Seminary and have had a few classes with Dr. Goldingay. I highly recommend his first volume of Old Testament Theology!
