HT to Christine Sine who posted Tom Sine is Blogging (April 13, 2010). Looking forward to Tom’s entering of the blogosphere ;-) His first question is with regard to what difference Easter/the resurrection is making in our troubled world, not just our personal lives. To show that ESN’s thinking about this question, I shared some material from Amish Grace and Recognizing the Messiah. What comments/thoughts do you have to share?
PS. Wish I could point to a post on Desiring the Kingdom of God (James K. A. Smith. Grand Rapids, MI: Baker Books. 2009). But even with the requirement to have read parts of it by the end of the month for a faculty ministry discussion and Byron Borger, Hearts & Minds Books, calling it one of the most important books of 2009, it still sits in queue. Anyone who has read it is welcome to comment as to whether it helps address Tom Sine’s question.
“One of the truly significant books of the year. . . . In this deeply philosophical study, [Smith] invites us to ask how to relate worship, life, and a radically Christian way of life. . . . Can universities help us become Godly dreamers? A huge, huge question, and this is a book worth working on for a long school year. Highly recommended.” — Byron Borger, Hearts & Minds Books
