Getting your world rocked, page by page
Subject studies in Hot Potato areas have been immensely satisfying for me. Eschatology led me to so many other lovely discoveries that I am being transformed by. The Age of the earth and creation studies, the development of atonement theories, its all been good. I do not tend to argue with Christians about these things but I can be pretty opinionated if the environment is safe, which it often is not.
The two books above have been edifying. Dallas Willards approach to Christianity is so refreshing. I attended a Renovare Conference to meet him and others discovering more about discipleship and had the change to speak to him on the street one day and thank him for his writing. This Easter, our men's bible study is discussing some of the ideas in N.T.Wrights book about rethinking the issues of Easter and resurrection. I have always believed there was life after life after death that would include the universe and it felt good to be affirmed and given good biblical proof by this scholar.
