    Ever read it and what did you think? Is it as good as Knowing God and Desiring God or better? I hear its full of Reformed theology and a great defense at it. Is it? I have yet to read or finish Knowing God and Desiring God and should I read those first? In What order? I am always looking for ways to increase my knowledge of Reformed theology. Lots of Reformed books out there.

    Good book... but how in the world are you willing to read John Stott but not Tom Wright?

    maybe because one held to correct pauline theology, while the other has not?

    Do you know Stott's view of the hell and annihilationism?

    He denies an eternal hell. This is a huge problem.

    Yep... which if evangelist#### won't read Wright b/c of his views of justification, one would think he would avoid Stott like the plague.

    I like both Wright and Stott, btw.

    This is the kind of response that makes this a tragic board.

    I realise that, but not as bad as denying the real meaning and intent of Gospel justifing sinners!

    Yes, disagree with him on that, and also chalk that up to him getting theologically"soft" in his illness/old age!

    how so? Didn't NT Wrigjht reaffirm that calvin forwatd totally miunderstood justification as paul defined it?

    THAt seems pretty arrogant to me, as last I checked, he(Wright). not listed among 12 Apostles!
