Normally when I go running, I listen to seventies rock music. It takes something with a good driving beat to keep my feet moving. However, over the last week or so my exertions have been accompanied by a series of lectures from a conference at Wheaton College called: Jesus, Paul and the People of God: A Theological Dialogue with N.T. Wright.
The lectures are essentially reflections (some positive, some less so) on various aspects of Wright’s work as well as a couple of responses by the good Bishop himself. I can’t write notes while I’m running, so I can’t actually quote from the lectures directly. However, anything that engages my mind so much that I don’t hurt while gasping my way up some Chiltern hill has to be worth listening to.
I’d especially recommend Kevin Vanhoozer’s paper. It is simply hilarious, which is not something that you often hear said about a theology lecture.
Well done to Wheaton for arranging this conference and for putting the papers online!
