Surprised by Hope 14

Surprised by Hope 14 February 22, 2008

(Say the Jesus Creed morning and evening during Lent.)
We now come to the end of Tom Wright’s book, Surprised by Hope. Today I want only to summarize very briefly the last two chps because we have already come to terms with the central ideas.

Tom sketches the significance of resurrection and mission in each of the Gospels and Paul (he doesn’t do Peter!).
The last chp addresses Easter and creation redeemed and mission and spirituality. There are many interesting and suggestive thoughts here, including thoughts about time and space. There are also thoughts about new birth and baptism, eucharist, prayer, Scripture, holiness, and love.
