Have you read Thomas Cahill's books? I love 'em. The notion of linear time, particularly, and the goodness of the created world, are key things in his book about the Jews.

I'm reading a book by F. LeRon Schults, theology prof who just left Bethel for a stint in a public university in Norway. His thing is relational theology based on the interrelationship of the Trinity, and he has a lot to say about futurity.

Great thoughts about scripture. I am happy to discover in Shults, NT Wright and others a hopeful vision of the future arising from a different interpretation of scripture than what I encountered in my sojurn as an evangelical. We have serious work to do, but it's not all doom and gloom and fire and brimstone.

Thanks for blogging this book.

I have read "Gift of the Jews" and "How the Irish Saved Civilization." Great stuff!

I am not familiar with Shults. Sounds like someone I need to check out.

It isn't just Evangelicals who need to work through eschatology. Mainliners essentially don't have one!

Jesus talked about the wheat and tares growing up together. I think there is growth toward shalom when we take the long view of history. It comes in fits and starts; advances in one place are inhibited only for greater advances to pop up in another place. I don't think we can ever achieve full shalom apart from Christ's return but I do expect we will see ever growing evidence of God at work in the world between now and Christ's return.

Thanks for your affirmation of this "book." I am now getting ready to launch into my conclusions. I have really enjoyed doing this.
