With the present discussion of N.T. Wright’s After You Believe (published as Virtue Reborn in the U.K.) I wanted to point you to Imbi’s very good review of the book here @ kinnon.tv from back in mid-March.

Bishop N.T. Wright does a masterful sweep of ethics and its various roots and streams, calling us back to working at Christian virtue – identifying and then avoiding the extremes of grace and works – those two polarizing positions of Christian history. In fact, the book gives us a broad enough and thoroughly orthodox way forward – to begin to become who we already are, in Christ – doing so framed within the church, communally, for the sake of the world, missionally.

Read the whole review here.

One response to Tom Wright’s After You Believe

  1. We have to grow into Scripture, like a young boy inheriting his older brother’s clothes and flopping around in them, but he gradually builds out and grows up. Perhaps it’s a measure of our maturity when parts of Scripture that we found odd or even repellent suddenly come up in a new light.
