N.T. Wright

Every once in awhile I check out Dan Wilt's blog ( Today I was treated to a lengthy quote from NT Wright.

Here is the teaser (and I encourage you to check out the longer quote and link to full text at the link above):

The vocation of the artist is to speak of the present as beautiful in
itself but as pointing beyond itself, to enable us to see both the glory
that already fills the earth and the glory that shall flood it to
overflowing; to speak, within that, of the shame without ignoring the
promise, and to speak of the promise without forgetting the shame.”
Apocalyptic and the Beauty of God by the Bishop of Durham, Dr. N.T. Wright
