In the 2nd chapter Tom Wright rehearses the in some ways unfortunate of the Reformation forcing all our reading of Paul into a discussion about justification and salvation. He then critiques even further reductionism like that of Bultmann who reduces theology to anthropology, and Christology to soteriology, so the whole Pauline discussion is about humankind [Read More...]

So much asking

Missionary Blogs - Thu, 08/27/2015 - 08:30
Missionaries seem to always ask. Asking, asking, asking. Always asking. We ask for prayer and for help. Many ask for money too. It's an aspect of our lives that probably annoys some...

Paul and his Recent Interpreters by N.T. Wright— Part One

CKB— August 26th 2011: A Hommage

Ben Witherington - Bible and Culture - Wed, 08/26/2015 - 02:46
I remember him differently than some might. He seemed at once formidable and yet gentle. A towering intellect, and yet a sweet spirit, with a good sense of humor as well.
