The Always, and particularly more so now, Wonderful Witherington

August 14, 2006

I just wanted to call your attention to some recent fantastic postings by the astute Asbury professor, Dr. Ben Witherington III. His comments on Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Truth are words of wisdom pertaining to the biblical view of how a Christian should interact with our environment.

Another one of his recent excellent posts addreses the skepticism that is so prevalent in some circles of biblical scholarship.

Perhaps the most controversial is his blogging on a new book concerning the faiths of America’s Founding Fathers, and some of the unbiblical lauding of America’s past actions. I suppose such a book would go perfectly with Greg Boyd’s latest, The Myth of a Christian Nation, which is also being spotlighted on the blogsphere (I got the link from Scot McKnight). Maybe sometime this year I’ll get around to reading these two. There are simply too many things I want to read.

So all of you go on and make your way over to that Witherington goodness.

    So what book by Witherington shall I read as my first? Alas, I am of the uninitiated. *blush*

    Nice site, by the by. Subtle theological reference even in the title. Though the funniest title I’ve encountered in that vein was Doug Wilson’s “Blog and Mablog.”

    Hey Mac,

    I’ve only read his John’s Wisdom (a commentary on John with the lense of Jewish hellenistic Wisdom theology to view the text) and Jesus, Paul and the End of the World (a treatment of the eschatological passages in Jesus and Paul discussing whether either Paul or Jesus believed in an imminent end to the world). For a full list, see here: http://benwitherington.com/Books.htm

    Thanks for reading and commenting.
