    It was decent. I don't see any underlining in it, so nothing must have stood out in particular. The main thrust of the book was spot-on, as far as I can remember.
    Enter the Church and wash away your sins. For here there is a hospital and not a court of law. Do not be ashamed to enter the Church; be ashamed when you sin, but not when you repent. – St. John Chrysostom

    Also now reading two more books:

    • One Body: An Essay in Christian Sexual Ethics by Alexander R. Pruss

    The New Testament and the People of God - N.T. Wright
    1491 - Charles Mann
    The Politics of Myth - Robert S. Ellwood
    King Lear - William Shakespeare. I saw a production of this yesterday and wanted to be acquainted with the contents. Great play and production!

    Missed one - Ethnicity and Argument in Eusebius' Praeparatio Evangelica by Aaron P. Johnson. This one got a comment from a fellow Metro rider. It has some really good material for early Christian apologetics. Highly recommended, though it's not exactly light reading (or priced to sell ).

    It's very good - I'm almost done and I've found pretty much everything I've read in it to be interesting, well-argued and highly useful for further study and reflection. Nothing less than what I've come to expect from Wright. I especially liked the discussion of methodology and Wright's outline of the Critical-Realist stance.

    Sounds good! And who needs to worry about price when my seminary gives me access to an eBook version from anywhere...

    I had many of the same thoughts when I read it. It's been a few years, so I was trying to remember the general gist. I'm sure I'll definitely have occasion to refer back to it.
