Wright ´ 0 Characters A thoughtful and provocative collection in the vein of the intellectual spiritual classic The Weight of Glory from N T Wright the influential Bishop Bible scholar and bestselling author widely regarded as a modern C S LewisAn unusual combination of scholar churchman and leader N T Wright hailed by Newsweek as “the world’s leading New Testament. I finished this book nearly three weeks ago but I couldn t review it until now because I hadn t transcribed all my notes yet Because there were a lot of notes Because this book is amazingThe premise is simple N T Wright tackles a variety of modern subjects like politics feminism and many using the Bible as a reference and again and again finds surprising relevance for modern problems from this ancient scriptureI don t think I could really do the themes of the book justice with a handful of uotes but I ll do my best to summarize in my own words1 Scientism is not new Scientism meaning the kind of hyper rationalism of the New Atheists and the like is in Wright s mind just the most recent form of EpicureanismEpicureanism is a system of philosophy based upon the teachings of the ancient Greek philosopher Epicurus founded around 307 BC Epicurus was an atomic materialist following in the steps of Democritus His materialism led him to a general attack on superstition and divine interventionWright draws a pretty straight line from there to the Enlightenment and criticizes the philosophy as being essentially a philosophy for the privileged and also of being so myopically analyticreductive that it loses sight of greater truths He uoted Rabbi Jonathan Sacks on this one Science takes things apart to see how they work Religion puts things together to see what they mean2 Love is the highest form of knowing This is a really big one for me because the connection between knowing and loving is a big part of the way I see the world and I think a subtle but important part of Mormon theology It definitely plays a huge role in the philosophy of Orson Scott Card which I think is where I first got the notion3 The historicity of scripture This was a really important one Wright s view is the one that makes the most sense to me scripture is to be taken literally when it wants to be taken literally There are two accounts of Genesis chapters 1 and 2 and they contradict on some pretty basic points like whether God created Adam or the animals first Ergo says Wright we re clearly not supposed to read the Creation story literally But the Resurrection of Christ he argues persuasively makes absolutely no sense as mere metaphor It can t be just a symbol because that doesn t fit either the textual presentation or the subseuent history This is by far I think the healthiest attitude to take towards scripture and it was really refreshing coming from someone outside my faith community The lights still burn
