I've not read Desiring the Kingdom, Andy; in fact, I'm not sure I've come across it before. Please would you summarise it? It's the kind of book that looks like it's worth reading, but I'm not sure if it's one to prioritise.

Terry, Desiring the Kingdom is really good. Smith argues we are liturgical desiring animals (Augustinian) - and argues that worship seeks to shape our desires to God and the kingdom, against the powers in the world that seek to shape our desires in other directions. I've found it very helpful.


Okay, thanks. I might check it out sooner rather than later.

When I was attending AAR/SBL last November in Atlanta, the most awaited book with big buzz was Longenecker's commentary on Romans due in March from Eerdmans.


Hi Andy
John Flett is my colleague and he is correcting final proofs as I write. I have read a draft MS and it is really very very good. The other one to look out for will be Daniel Kirk's book on the human christology of the Synoptics (eerdmans).
