Middle Son Arrives Tonight!

Yay! I am so happy he can come home for Thanksgiving.

I am disciplining myself to read 10 pages of The New Testament and the People of God by N.T. Wright every night. After laying 120 dense pages of groundwork, we’re starting to get somewhere. Phew! I am hoping to learn more about the Jews in first century Palestine–the “people of God” that the title refers to. I am assuming that is where all this groundwork on historical study and literary theory and worldviews and theology is leading! I must be absorbing some of it because when I was talking to Scott last night, I couldn’t hold the conversation without using the word “story” as N. T. Wright has been using it in recent chapters.

About katiekind

Enjoying the second half of life. I have three sons who are the apples of my eye and a wonderful husband of 35 years--those are the important things. Long ago, out of the blue, I became a Christian. It was something I never planned on, but what joy it has been. I do website development and I like to read and garden and paint and I love beauty and truth.

    Stick with, it’s worth the effort. You made it through the hardest part, by far. Though his idea of a “hermeneutic of love” in that first section is genius.

    Hope you’re having fun with the family! Looking forward to hearing how the NTW book comes out. I have his “Simply Christian” but get the feeling I’d enjoy his other work more.
