Book Meme Redux

JOB has weighed in on the book meme:

“One book you’d want on a desert island. Me too, the Bible: Without Genesis, myth would be whistling in the dark; without the Psalms, sonnets would be hollow; without Macabees, epics would be trite; without Song of Songs, eroticism would be joyless; without Lamentations, elegy would remain frustratingly grave; without the book of Job, faith would be merely existentialism; without Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, the truth would be a cicerone holding a lamp up in the darkness of a tomb…”
