Surprised by Hope (N. T. Wright)

Doug Morgan, an Adventist Activism contributor, has just finished a ten-part review/conversation on N. T. Wright’s book, Surprised by Hope at his primary blog, Adventist Peace Messenger.

In the final installment, Morgan writes:

Throughout Surprised by Hope, N.T. Wright’s purpose has been to heal a “long-term schizophrenia” in the church, and I suppose that one reason I find the book so appealing is that I struggle with a form of the disorder. The “schizophrenia” takes the form of a “split between saving souls and doing good in the world,” which, as Wright has demonstrated reapeatedly from varying angles, “is a product not of the Bible or the gospel but the cultural captivity of both within the Western world” (265).
