RE: What's in your religious book collection?
I got shot of my scriptures - Bible, Qu'ran, Mahabarata and others - some time ago. I kept only a rather beautiful copy of the Tao Te Ching.

That said, I have reintroduced the Bible (KJ) into the hoise for the sake of my son: apart from his RE studies, I want him to read this and draw his own conclusions. I do consider a text that is important if he is to understand the nature of the religious beast.

So far, the vaccine is proving effective. Smile

We have quite the collection of scientology books and books on mormonism. As well as some great cult books....including one based around 11:11

Oh we do. Those overly elaborate religious texts shall not be dismissed.Wink

I've got a nice little range of texts from the past and some piled from religious texts.

I have a quaint red bible
The Quran
2 Bhagavad-gitas (ones a krishna version)
Tao Te Ching
Teachings of Buddha
Dianetics - which I found for a $1 so I bought it.

And plenty of quasi religious texts like Analects of Confucius, The book of 5 rings, Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, and some other zen buddhism books.

Also a sleuth of mythology books, which are the same thing, but I'm not gonna list all that.

It may be fiction, but still ranks as one of my favorites --

"Another Roadside Attraction" - by Tom Robbins.

It's even got the Vatican's Killer Monks in it...

What more could you want?
