I came ‘late’ to this program 6 so am not writing anticipating John Walton.[fabulous episode] Don’t know how that happened…was downloading from the podcast. oops. Really good food for thought here! and so much help in re-molding our USA attitudes. religious training unto lack of knowledge too. At the end there was the reminder about where the battlefield truly is for us as individuals. Thank you thank you. my question is about the N.T.Wright book you suggested. I see on Amazon another book of his recommended [somewhere] ‘How God Became King’. good one? also saw in the promo that Mr.Wright is ‘heir to C.S.Lewis. That is high praise for sure. Do you agree or modify that view? Will his books really help restore kingdom mindsets? with thanks and blessing.
I would concur about Wright being heir to CS Lewis. He is simply brilliant. “How God Became King” is a wonderful book and I have inserted a number quotes in my new book. I would suggest listening to his many lectures posted online. He totally gets it. Can’t figure out how an Anglican bishop sees the big picture and understands the role of Israel throughout the Bible. Anyone who says Temple theology studies is severely lacking among Christian scholars has my vote. He has said often this must be an area for more study and research in order to understand the NT. Love it. I sent him my book and who knows maybe he will take a look at it.
Surely he will be captured by the cover picture and the title!!! You are on the map!! LOL Thanks for the input. I don’t have enough to read yet….eye roll….
what about GK Beale? Meredith Kline? [a great library is hard to find!]
GK Beale is also one of my favorites. His “Temple and the Church’s Mission” is excellent. Yes, Meredith Kline is essential for getting a good grasp on covenants.
I hope so. Not sure which part of the map though. lol. Some days it feels like lower Slobovia.
