Blogging has been light of late. I haven’t been feeling especially inspired (I can hardly remember the last time that I did) and have also been working on essays. Today I am going to be spending most of my time in Edinburgh with some friends, which should be enjoyable. Hopefully it will be an enriching cultural experience; I have not had one of those for a while.
Perhaps I will finish my series on the authority of Scripture next week. I might also post something on the subject of Christian faith and the ecology. Good books that I have been reading lately include Douglas Knight’s The Eschatological Economy and Peter Candler’s Theology, Rhetoric, Manuduction, or Reading Scripture Together on the Path to God. Steven Bouma-Prediger’s For the Beauty of the Earth was good (but not as good as it could have been) and Simon Wiesenthal’s The Sunflower was superb, a must-read. I also used deSilva on Hebrews recently and share Leithart’s assessment. Issues that I am planning to revisit and explore in more depth include those of forgiveness and homosexuality (David Greenberg’s The Construction of Homosexuality was a really interesting and thought-provoking read). I am increasingly convinced that we need to re-examine traditional Christian debates about homosexualities and sharpen up our positions considerably in a number of areas.
That is all.
