its not really a book, its just a 34 page essay that was written by Rev. Dr. David J. Lull, Associate Proffessor of New Testament, Wartburg Theological Seminary in Debuque Iowa.

 

Its just a focus on the New Testament, and God's eschatological renewal of creation in Romans 8.18-30. Just a little theological essay followed by a detailed annalysis of some text that supports his essay.

 

 

Now I see a reason this guy is the director of bible translation and utilization for the National Council of the Churches of Christ in the USA.

I'm reading a bunch of boring ass schoolish books. When I was in jail I was so bored I must've read every New York times bestseller for the past 50 years and I found I was STARVING for something intelligent. The most intelligent reading I found of that group were spy/political books and Eric Von Lustbader. I've been reading Lustbader for a long time and his stuff is consistantly good.

So I'm reading HEAVY, HEAVY mindblowing shit now exclusively until I have enough in my brain to tide me over should another intellectual drought occur.
