Theology Done Well

Some evangelical believers–and some non-evangelical for that matter–tend to behave as though theology is some cold or stale scholastic exercise that leaves us dry spiritually. However, real theology is simply God word–it is the attempt to glimpse God and speak as accurately about him a possible. When it is true, when it is done well, Theology draws us to worship God. When we get a true glimpse of the true God we must bow.

That being said, I must say that N T Wright’s book The Crown and the Fire is one of the best theological works I have ever read. After reading chapter 10 especially in which Wright discusses Romans 8:17-27 I could do nothing but repent and praise for nearly an hour.

I highly recommend it.
