A big thank you for the many kind and gracious notes remembering Lillian. Lillian was a wonderful wife and partner in life for some 63 years. I will miss her. A large congregation gathered yesterday to witness to the resurrection and give thanks for her life. We have been blessed with good

Andy- Thanks for forwarding this. I seem to be off the Confessing Christ now, as I seldom hear anything. For a while I was just thankful not to be hearing political intrusions into our joyful theological conversations, but I do miss the conversations. Herb and his family will be in my prayers

To my Email list: Dear Friends, I wanted to let you know that Lillian died on Tuesday, June 13. She was worn out. Her death was expected since she has been under Hospice care for some months but we were surprised that she died very suddenly. She died at home. The Christian community will

Greetings Herb, in fact, I did receive your message in my email. Happy days are here again! You raise an important point in inferring that my hermeneutical reliance on 2 Corinthians 5:19 (God was in Christ reconciling the world to himself) is more or less synonymous with Wright's depiction of

Tue, 14 Mar 2017 12:01:38 UTC

Dear George, How is your suggestion that we start at 2 Cor 5 and go back different than what Wright has done? I thought that he was taking Second Temple Judaism as the pre history to Jesus’s death and resurrection to understand the incarnation, so that the incarnation was not rooted in the

Thank you Bill, Many years ago, in response to a pastor who insisted that Christ died for our sins, i said to him, "Do you know why Christ died, he was executed." From a faith-based perspective, both are true and need to be accounted for. Wright has dome yeoman service in fleshing out some of

George and All, First, congratulations, George, on the publication of your book The Historical Jesus and the Christ of Faith. And now thank you for calling our attention to the book by Wright on the atonement. I've been working my way through it, mostly agreeing with his conclusions. I'm

brief quote from Wright on the atonement

Colleagues, after I posted that lengthy message, I also noticed the following passage from Wax's article on Wright, which provides a very apt summary of his position: Perhaps the best understanding of Wright’s view of the atonement is found in his contribution to the New Dictionary of Theology.
