Reading Recommendation

Although we spend much of our time here discussing the early chapters of
Genesis, much the same controversy goes on concerning the Gospels. In
fact, Dan Berger recommended this list to me when I asked him, in another
forum, how one goes about reconciling a fairly non-literal reading of
Genesis with a fairly literal reading of the Gospels.

Over the past week or so, I've been reading _The New Testament and the
People of God_, by N. T. Wright. I found it to be a very interesting book,
though a little tough sledding in some places. Although the book is
directed at the New Testament end of the problem, his comments are useful
in the survey of Genesis as well. I've tried to summarize what he's
saying, or failing that, to find a quotation that will help, but with no
success (the book does have over 470 pages of text, after all). But you
may want to see if your local library has a copy.

Yours in Christ,
