An Invitation

Welcome! This blog serves as a sounding board and source of conversation and information for a small group of us who have begun meeting biweekly in the University of Massachusetts Campus Center to explore implications of N.T. Wright's work for contemporary Christian theology and the practice of faith.

We have begun reading Wright's recent book, Evil and the Justice of God (Downer's Grove, IL: InterVarsity Press, 2006). If you happen to be in this geographical area, we would be delighted for you to join us. Currently, we are meeting on the second and fourth Tuesday's of each month (unless announced otherwise) at the Blue Wall cafeteria.

I hope this will not be just another book-of-the-month club, but that this group will be a context for intentional spiritual and community formation through critical engagement with the rich resources of Christian theology.

In the next few days, I hope to get posted some helpful links on Wright's work and some of our friends involved in similar endeavors.

"Wright On Theology" is sponsored by Jakob's Well, an Ecumenical Christian Community for the Pioneer Valley region of Western Massachusetts. For more information, see www.jakobswell.org.

Bi-weekly makes it sound like you are meeting twice a week. Do you mean fortnightly?

Dear moffit the prophet,
Thanks -- yes, we meet fortnightly.
Thanks for stopping

Well I live down South but would love to attend your meetings. NT has challenged and provoked me in my faith and study of Scripture. I've been spreading NT lectures and books to other ministers and believers for the last couple years.

Looking forward to tracking your conversation.
