The 2010 Wheaton Theology Conference on N. T. Wright wrapped-up yesterday, and the audio and video of the sessions are now available at Wheaton’s website. The conference was called “Jesus, Paul and the People of God: A Theological Dialogue with N.T. Wright,” and speakers included N. T. Wright, Richard Hays, Kevin Vanhoozer, and Nicholas Perrin. I’m looking forward to listening to these.
Wright’s speech on Paul was… surprising. Creation is waiting for us to be proper stewards? That’s Pauline eschatology?
I did appreciate his framing Pauline theology using Philemon, since here we have a view of Paul’s application of his own theology.
I simply, despite all efforts at sincerely trying to adopt Wright’s views, cannot see how someone finds them credible.
God is going to put the world to rights… through human beings. 27:09.
Denny, I’d be interested to hear your thoughts on his Paul lecture if you have time.
I’ll try to post after I have listened. Thanks.
God’s intent since Creation has been to have humans rule as stewards over earth.
