John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

Why so many books?

 

Well, nine would be from Scripture, and Calvin's Christian Institutes would be the tenth. As for my first two, number one would be John, and then Romans. I'd have to sort through which books (7 others) those two books made allusions.

 

Now, if you only asked for Five Books, I'd say by deserting Moses or John on an island. Both wrote five literary works in our Bibles :RpS_sleep:

 

So to answer your question, I'd get ten books on a deserted island by sending John to find Moses. :RpS_flapper:

 

God bless,

William

Being stranded on a deserted island. Well -- remember Gilligan's Island from many decades back? Their 4-hour tour turned out to be how many years stranded.

 

Since I'm a book reader -- I'd be taking my Bible. And some medical mystery books. But -- that would Probably mean no electricity -- no Computer -- no TV. Maybe I'd better Not get stranded.

 

There's a story about 3 guys who Did get stranded on an island. One of them found a bottle -- they rubbed it and out popped a genie -- they were told they could have one wish appease. The 1st guy wished he could be back home -- poof. He was gone. The 2nd guy wished for another location -- poof, he was Also gone. The 3rd guy looked around and realized the other two were gone and he'd be lonesome there by himself. So he wished for the other two to be Back. And poof -- they came back. Very Mad !!!!

 

Moral of that story -- choose your traveling companions carefully.

Or are you saying that you'd choose 9 of your favorite books of the Bible -- they'd have to be in loose-leaf form, though.

You even included solar panels. In order to use your cell phone -- wouldn't you need the cell phone towers? Don't know of any cell phone tower companies that put their towers on 'far away deserted islands'.

 

So you'd probably be out of luck with your cell phone or Smart Phone for communication.

Any local Palm tree should work as a tower.

When the stork brings your books -- you Could send a message back with him so that the rescue planes could be watching for the palm tree. But you'll need to let the stork know to Not bring any babies back with him. :)

My ten books:

Bible (ESV or NASB)

I Will Always Write Back by Martin Ganda and Caitlin Alifrenka

Reformed Expository Commentary set (not sure how many are in the set)

A couple of notebooks 

pens

solar panels (good idea Just Mike)

satellite phone

iPad

Magnifying Glass

water purifier

 

All of these supplies would arrive in a waterproof container, strapped to a turtle’s back with rope. (Somewhat a reference to Pirates of the Caribbean)
