N. T. Wright has really helped me see how the Christian life in Paul’s letters is all about “theology proper.” Who God is means something essential about who we are.
This was a great video. My only worry is that it is used to vindicate some rather dry and lifeless stuff–it can be used in a kind of bait and switch. You see this great video and it motivates you to go to a church or attend a class that trains you to be a first class Pharisee. A vision of life pulls you into a community of arrogance and self-exalting slogans that you are proud to own because others don’t.
That’s not the video’s fault; just something I’ve grown to be worried about.
