There can be only one!

Recently reading the following sparked an enlightening exercise.
"If R.C. [Sproul] only had one book in prison: The Bible. Only one chapter: Isaiah 6. Only one verse: Genesis 15:6. Only one book from the Bible: Hebrews."

Hmm. What about me? This was harder than I thought it would be, but ...

If I was isolated somewhere (e.g., the joint), and was limited, I would want the following:

How about you?

Chapter: Isa 53
Verse:Romans 8:3-4 (yes I cheated!)
Book: Matthew

Book: How to Escape from from an American Prison (State or Federal) by Theodore Browne (thank you G.K. Chesterton)
Bible Book: John
Chapter: Matthew 5–7 (probably chapter 6 if I can only have 1)
Verse: Phil 3:8–11

Book: Bible
Chapter: Ephesians 2
Verse: John 3:16
Book: John

That Ephesians 2 was my runner-up, Chris.

Matt, you're really pushing the envelope with Matt 5-7, but you'd be hard pressed to find a better triad of chapters in Scripture.

I'll have to investigate further this Theodore Browne book, for that's high praise.

Tyler, I still think Spurgeon would have made a great power forward.

that Isaiah 5. is good stuff. and that 2 Cor 5:21 powerful. Romans 8 is good and encouraging but I gotta have Psalms to put me in the right frame of mind to worship my Lord and really be in His presence.

Good questions though. Good fun.
