BTW, I’m NOT sorry about the music :) If you don’t like it, turn the volume down…

Today is Shameless Promotion Day on Frank Viola’s blog, Beyond Evangelical.  Viola writes, “I want to highlight these two posts because they promote the work of others that I deem valuable.”  In order to participate in Shameless Promotion Day, I have been instructed to post the following:

 

N.T. Wright Interview: “Simply Jesus” & Wright Responds to Critics

At the moment, I do not have the time to read or write commentary on the interviews.  I am not familiar with either Wright or McKnight or their critics.  I am, however, familiar with Frank Viola after reading his excellent book, Pagan Christianity, during my two-year trek through church history a few years ago, which culminated in the Amazing Hope that Jesus Christ is, in fact, the Savior of the world.  The traditional teaching is that He is the Savior only of those who believe before they experience physical death, but scriptures say otherwise – “He is the Savior of all men, especially those who believe.”  I think it is fair that I point out that to my knowledge, Frank Viola does not share or endorse some (a lot?) of the views expressed in this blog.  Viola has a good head on his shoulders, and much of what he says is relevant and true.  Yes, we disagree on some things, but that is the nature of the very diverse body of Christ, unified in LOVE.  I hope you enjoy reading the interviews, and let me know what you think of them.  I’ll respond to the interviews in the near future.
