N.T. Wright and Walter Moberly (both Biblical scholars) have major articles in the Nov 2012 issue of Scottish Journal of Theology. Wright’s is called “Imagining the Kingdom: Mission and Theology in Early Christianity.” If I am to understand the (very lengthy and complex!) abstract, Wright takes the Gospels and argues that a misreading of the Gospels and their intent has led to a wider misunderstanding of Christian theology. Wright offers a reading of the Gospels that is political (in the good sense of the word!), missional, and visionary. Very interesting that his “keywords” (for tagging) of the article are: “brain,” “Epicureanism,” “Gospels,” “Israel’s narrative,” “kingdom of God,” “left brain/right brain,” and “missiology.” I think this article is, perhaps, a nice scholarly reflection that comes out of his Simply Jesus series.
Also, Nick Perrin gives Kavin Rowe’s Early Narrative Christology a largely positive review.
