Two items of interest to share here ...
» Newsweek: The Smart Shepherd (Lisa Miller)
Interesting story here on New York's Rev. Tim Keller ... author of the soon-to-be-released "The Reason for God." Keller explains the book a bit himself over at his church's site. There's also the downloadable sermons that relate to the book.
» Time: Christians Wrong About Heaven, Says Bishop (David Van Biema)
And this one covers another author, NT Wright - also with a book to be on shelves soon. An interesting Q&A on how the Bible defines heaven. I never got around to reading Randy Alcorn's book on the subject, but I'm curious how much agreement/disagreement there is between the two.
I've had Wright's "Simply Christian" on my to-read list for a while now and I'm still vacillating on whether that's the book of his I want to read first. Knowing there's a new one to hit the shelves probable doesn't help me much. If I remember correctly, it seems that I recall hearing of Wright preaching at Rob Bell's Mars Hill church sometime in the near future. Something to look forward to.
