Recent Sample Downloads On My Kindle

Here is a sample of the samples I have recently downloaded for reviewing. It would be a mistake to conclude any theological position I hold from my current reading list. In some cases I am chasing rabbits. In others I am pursuing longer term interests. In still others I am trying to keep in touch with those who would oppose a position I hold. I do hold an interest in the thought of NT Wight. He is on to something when he observes that Evangelicals find it difficult to find the Gospel in the Gospels, a fact that should cause us to take another look at what we believe the Gospels are all about. I have long been concerned about how little role the Gospels play in Evangelical thought as anything other than a backdrop for Pauline theology. This should automatically be of some disturbance to us. How is it that we find so little in Jesus’ teaching that seems to fit with our supposed very clear ideas of the Gospel according to Paul? NT Wright is opening up that door. Some are afraid to go in, afraid perhaps that this would force us to rethink too much.
