Inklings

I'm addicted to books. According to Umberto Eco I am building an anti-library, meaning I own way more books than I have read. I love good fiction, literature, theology, Biblical studies, philosophy, children's books, and lots more.

Surprised by Hope: Rethinking Heaven, the Resurrection, and the Mission of the Church - N.T. Wright When I read Evil and the Justice of God, I had a lot of questions on how Wright arrived at some of his beliefs. Many of those questions were answered in this helpful book. Wright takes a look at the Biblical evidence for the after-life (or as he puts it "life after life after death"), revealing that many popular--even in the church--beliefs are not, in fact, Biblical. Instead, he presents the Biblical evidence and pushes forward into its implications for today and the future. While I'm not quite sure how I feel about certain of his inferences (debt forgiveness for example), I do appreciate the fact that Wright draws conclusions for how Christians should think and act in their personal lives and in the worship and service of the Church.
