After all, nothing says luvin' like dynamic equivalence and an orange theology book (no sarcasim here either; I couldn't ask for a better gift - she knows me well). Anyway, I'll be wrapping up Longenecker's book this week (still no sarcasm here, I'm really planning on finishing it - even ahead of schedule), so I thought I'd take a peak at Drama of Doctrine this morning and I was not dissappointed. Just a few pages into the preface and I was hooked. Listen to these words:
"Theological competance is ultimately a matter of being able to make judgments that display the mind of Christ" (p. 2).
Vanhoozer writes at the highest level of scholarship, yet never seems to lose his relevance.
