Reviews - What do customers think about Reflecting the Glory: Meditations for Living Christ's Life in the World?
Provocative reflective readings from a master Feb 26, 2004
N.T. Wright writes well in a technical/scholarly style and in a devotional style. This book is a collection of devotional/meditational reflections concerning Christ's glory. Interestingly, it starts with reflections on suffering. Suffering is formative in Christ's glorification. It, thus, is formative for ours. Wow, is that something I need to be reminded of!
Wright, whom I believe is more of a Pauline scholar than a gospels scholar, has injected new life into modern views of Jesus and Paul. Yet his works are firmly grounded in orthodox church doctrine. All of his writing is steeped in meditation and prayer, not merely research. He strives to apply the story of Scripture (the gospel) to our place and time in history. As such, his works, both scholarly and devotional, are accessible, relevant, enjoyable, and powerful. I highly recommend his writing.
I'm using this book as a series of Lenten reflections. But it is appropriate for devotional reading anytime during the year. Highly recommended.
Good text, produced very poorly by Augsburg Press Dec 9, 1998
N T Wright's works are always worth reading. Insightful with a depth of scholarly and spiritual integrity not usually seen in New Testament scholarship. The problem with this book is that Augsburg press has gone out of its way to make the book unattractive and difficult to read. The print is abnormally small and faint. It looks like a not-too-bright clerk did the copying at Kinkos, forgetting to adjust the darkness button and reducing the size of the copy too far. Try again!
