This is just a short post to announce a milestone on a much longer journey: I’ve finshed volume two of N.T. Wright’s “Christian Origins and the Question of God” (“Jesus and the Victory of God”). It was the task I set myself at the beginning of my holidays, and now I can return to work tomorrow with at least one achievement ticked off my list.
Tomorrow I begin a course at ACU with Rabbi Fred Morgan (known to me for some time through my interfaith work) and Fr Francis Moloney called “Jews and Christians reading the Bible”. The reading I have just completed will be a good compliment to that.
Now for the next task, the point at which I first heard of Wright and wanted to start reading before I chose to read the first two volumes in this series (and was side tracked onto his Pauline works in relation to my teaching for Anima and the Pauline Year): volume three, his big book on the Resurrection of the Son of God!
