RJS,
It devolps his ideas through how he sees Christian virtue being taught throughout the New Testament.

He had a lecture or so on this last winter – one in Feb 2009 at Fuller in particular that I found very good and thought provoking. It was available as an mp3 – but now seems to be available only through iTunesU – great stuff. (NT Wright page toward the bottom: Fuller Theological Seminary, February 2009: Learning the Language of Life: New Creation, and Christian Virtue (iTunes)
Looks like I am going to have to get the book.

It’s in the mail from Amazon. Should arrive in the next day or so and I will likely begin a series as well. Would love to see some discussion on the intersection between spiritual disciplines and the development of Christian virtue, as I see a considerable gap between them. Clearly the former should give rise to the gradual increase of the latter.

Scot,
I saw this N.T. Wright book at “The Bookstore” (Eerdmans) here in G.R. and was intrigued by the introduction. This should be a very stimulating series of posts.

Our Common Prayerbook 30 - 3
Psalm 30 thanks God (vv. 1-3, 11-12) and exhorts others to thank God (vv. 4-5). Both emerge from the concrete reality of David's own experience. Here is what that experience looks like:Step one: David was set on high and was flourishing at the hand of God's bounty (v. 7a).Step two: David became too

Theology After Darwin 1 (RJS)
One of the more important and more difficult pieces of the puzzle as we feel our way forward at the interface of science and faith is the theological implications of discoveries in modern science. A comment on my post Evolution in the Key of D: Deity or Deism noted: ...this reminds me of why I get a

Almost Christian 4
Who does well when it comes to passing on the faith to the youth? Studies show two groups do really well: conservative Protestants and Mormons; two groups that don't do well are mainline Protestants and Roman Catholics. Kenda Dean's new book is called Almost Christian: What the Faith of Ou

Let's Get Neanderthal!
The Cave Man Diet, or Paleo Diet, is getting attention. (Nothing is said about Culver's at all.) The big omission, I have to admit, is that those folks were hunters -- using spears or smacking some rabbit upside the conk or grabbing a fish or two with their hands ... but that's what makes this diet
