Book notice: Dialogue with Tom Wright at Wheaton

Last year a number of respected Christian leaders met at Wheaton College to dialogue with Tom Wright about his view on Jesus, Paul and the church. I listened to a few presentations at this conference and it was really good. Here we don't just hear theology, but Tom Wright's pastor's heart. The speakers do disagree with Wright on several points, but they are very gracious.

They have now published a book based on the presentations at the conference. It's worth buying, I believe.
