Topic: Ruminations on N.T. Wright (aka, “Tom” to those who love and adore him so!). Just a quote to warm you up:
God forgive us, within modernity, when often we as Christians thought that the way to use the Bible to address the world was to abstract large chunky doctrines from the Bible and hurl them at the heads of people who believed large chunky modernist doctrines. You have to deconstruct the Bible in order to do that. Much better to let the Bible be what it is, which is a story, and stories are far more subversive and damaging to other alternative worldviews than large chunky doctrines ever were, which are basically shorthand versions of stories.
Excuse me as I dodge that large chunky doctrine that just flew past my head. See you at 7pm….
