What would be your Desert Island resources list?

If I were to be stranded on a desert island, I would want my Thompson Chain Reference Bibles (NASB, NIV, KJV, NKJV) and my Halley's Handbook. Then I would like to have my laptop with ALL of my Logos library. (Of course that laptop would have to have a self-renewing battery so that it would always be charged).

I like this question. If it's paper resources, I can think of a few right away:

  • NIV Bible
  • ESV Bible
  • Zondervan Strongest concordance
  • Bible dictionary (not sure which one yet)
  • Morning and Evening

I was trying to think which commentary I would want, never found one individual publication that could be used for all purposes. But then again I would be on a deserted island, so I could just make up my own interpretations, and no one would ever disagree with me. Wink

1) BHS

2) Textus Receptus

3) HALOT

4) BDAG

5) Statenvertaling

6) Szent Biblia (Hungarian Károli Bible)

7) Leiden Peshitta (under development)

8) Ursinus' commentary on the Heidelberg Catechism

2) Statenvertaling met kanttekeningen (Gereformeerde Bijbelstichting)

3) Biblia magyarázó jegyzetekkel (Hungarian translation of the Stuttgarter Erklärungsbibel)

and perhaps a book on building construction (as a dutchman I'd have to build two churches).

Assuming 10 resources are limited to actual books, and not sets, and not (sniff! sniff! boo hoo!) any software applications (unlike Bill above, I would not have access to a perpetual battery):

  1. NIV/NASB interlinear
  2. Englishman's Greek Concordance
  3. Christian Prayer--The Liturgy of the Hours
  4. (4-6) NT Wright's trilogy
  5. (7) John Cassian Conferences
  6. (8) CS Lewis' Problem of Pain
  7. (9) Dictionary of Biblical Imagery
  8. (10) Pritchett's Fire Someone Today  Angel

Otto,

You're such a show off...LOL...why include NICOT/NICNT? Did you just get those recently...;-)

Anyway, I forgot to include my 10 resources in my last post:

1.  Laptop with solar batteries - so it will run through out the day without having to worry about charging them (hopefully it exists).

2.  LBLA/NASB w/interlinear and Study Notes (it's a bilingual edition)

3.  IVP Reference Collection (Hey, it's ONE collection).

4.  UBS Handbooks

5.  Commentary on the New Testament Use of the Old Testament

6.  The College Press NIV Series (OT & NT)

7.  June Hunt's Counseling Keys (I'll need some counseling if stranded in an island).

8.  The Outline Bible

9.  The Complete Word Study Dictionary: Old Testament

10.  And BDAG

Alright, that's all!

LOL!!!!  Yes I did! I guess to include them sort of justifies the expense of getting them at this time!!!

 I guess I would be tagged a fundamentalist if I said the 10 Commandments. Smile

Most of them would be much easier to keep if we were alone on a desert island. Nobody to steal from or kill or commit adultery with (or against), nobody's stuff to covet, nobody to bear false witness against.
