N.T. Wright's New Book: "Evil and the Justice of God"

i have been intrigued by n.t. wright a conservative theologian that has influenced the thinking of many people who i have been reading i guess has written a new book. here is a link to a blog that share an excerpt from an interview with him. i am looking forward to reading this book.

"Wright says both theologies (the gnostic gospels and the left behind novels) cultivate a "private spirituality" where Christians are encouraged to forget Jesus' prayer that his followers work toward bringing the "kingdom come on earth." Why address global warming if the world is going to be wasted anyway?

"In both cases, you have this underlying motivation of leaving the world behind," he says of Gnosticism and the Left Behind novels."
