Thomas R. Schreiner
We can be grateful for some of the themes sounded in this book. Still, the lack of urgency about our need to repent and believe in the gospel is a blind-spot in Wright.
Wright appeals to many because he is brilliant and fascinating, and some of what he says is helpful. But his failure to emphasize the centrality of the gospel is troubling.
A Pastors’ and Theologians’ Forum:
What lessons have you learned the hard way in selecting elders?
God regenerates us and then we believe, and hence regeneration precedes our conversion.
We may say that Scripture is God’s inerrant word, yet still fail to proclaim it seriously from our pulpits.
