I intended to just sit down for a couple of pages, really just a few before going to sleep. I read 17 pages – up through page 30 – and just couldn’t stop reading. Of course, it isn’t into the meat of the book at all yet. But the writing is so good, and Wright is so interesting, that it is just a real pleasure to read.
I am terrible about book reviewing, and I happen to be reading several (many) other books right now. But this Wright book takes an important priority, as its historical moment of discussion is upon us.
—I am happy to see that Wright is indeed expecting to get done his Book 4 in the Christian Origins and the Question of God – the big book on Paul!—
