I'll be at Spurgeons tomorrow. see you there.


Burridge's book is on my (lengthy) to-read list. Have you read it, Andy? If so, what did you think?

Terry, I've read some of it ... beginning and ending for the symposium. I like the broad thesis ... Jesus is inclusive and we need to attend to the person and his narrative, not just the words of Jesus (his critique of others, esp. hays who he suggests almost ignores jesus), just not sure it does just to a pauline ethics. What i forgot to say is burridge said there is a part 2 of the book which will address modern day questions ... the end of the book has a bridging chapter on apartheid.

I guess i'm not sure this is the best way to do ethics - trying to construct a NT one - but both hays and burridge have made impressive attempts. I hear Hays has a review article appearing in SJT soon.
