Speaking of books, I am so excited that I won a copy of Ray Anderson’s "Emergent Theology for Emerging Churches" over on Ben Myer's Blog. He ran a contest and apparently I won with the most interesting comment and Byron won for the most entertaining, his is really quite cute. Sweet!
One good book story deserves another, so this is what I found on my outing to get Kenny's book.
- Myth and Christianity - Karl Jaspers and Rudolf Bultmann (just looked fascinating)
- The Symbolism of Evil - Paul Ricoeur (This one was not cheap, but one of the Ricoeur texts I've really wanted!)
- Outlines of the History of Dogma - Adolf Harnack (I got mixed up once and told someone I owned Harnack but really meant A. H. Newmann, I was thinking history... so now I legitimately own Harnack just not the text he outlines - someday maybe)
- Paul: Follower of Jesus or Founder of Christianity? - David Wenham (I'm hoping to do a course next semester on Pauline literature and there was some things that popped out at me thumbing through)
I think I did well. Next book purchase will be my texts for the year. I meet with someone from the St. Paul Theology department Wednesday to see about grad work possibilities there, if I have to do a masters first then I probably should know my options there.
