Are book recomendations considered poll/list questions?
[This question]]1 was closed as 'subjective' and 'asking for a list'. But I fail to understand why. For example, I extensively use other SE sites like http://askubuntu.com.The questions there like this one or this one are considered to be very useful for anyone approaching the subject.
This site being about Christianity and this site itself is not the Bible, but tries to answer questions in the light of Bible, I am sure Christianity allows room for discussion outside bible. Since the 1st century, so many great books have been written explaining Christianity so it would be natural for an SE site to point to a in-depth treatise on a subject if some one needs to know. I would believe such question would fall under FAQ. One such example of such books would be _Mere Christianity by C.S Lewis. May be John Stott's Basic Christianity would qualify, but I would not know.
So would you please explain how asking for a list of good books on the subject of an SE site qualify as 'subjective'. Also how does asking for a list disqualify as a SE question?
