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.
