    Money, Sex, Power, Life and Death: Using the New Testament in Social Ethics

    Friends:

    My slight revision of Professor Richard Burridge’s somewhat ‘tongue in cheek’ title for the draft of his new book on Social Ethics captures both the good humor and seriousness of a discussion last night at VTS. Dr. John Yieh and his wife Sue hosted a group of faculty for a substantive dinner in their home. Then the even more substantive discussion ensued. Dr. Burridge, Dean of King’s College London, took notes furiously as the ideas he presented initially were commented on, elaborated, qualified, nuanced–and altered. All this is part of the collaborative process leading to his next work [sequel to his Imitating Jesus: An Inclusive Approach to NT Ethics].

    It was a very informative and intellectually challenging evening.

    Peace,
    John
