Finally Finishing "Simply Christian"
A few quotes from N.T. Wright in the final chapters of his newest book "Simply Christian":
"You can't reflect God's image without returning to worship to keep the reflection fresh and authentic."
"In the same way, worship sustains and nourishes fellowship; without it, fellwoship quickly deteriorates into groups of the like-minded, which in turn quickly become exclusive cliques - the very opposite of what Jesus's people should be aiming at."
"At the heart of the Christian ethic is humility; at the heart of its parodies, pride."
If you haven't read it, I would recommend it if you like a little more talk about orthodoxy (right belief) and a little less about orthopraxy (right behavior).
Next book I am looking forward to is Rob Bell's Sex God.
