Seeing my Facebook status, Steven Sim and Charlene said, "BUY."
Kar Yong, the budding NT scholar, said that it is a 'good temptation'. Asked me not to resist it.
On Thursday morning, during my "devotion", I unexpectedly came across these words from Alister McGrath,
"Barth's Romans commentary... marked the injection of a new theological trajectory into western European Protestantism... hindsight allows us to note that the foundations of a theological revolution had been laid." (p. 5, emphasis added)That's it... Besides I've just finished listening to Stephen Tong's mis-titled 4-lectures seminar on Christology (he titled the seminar "The Eternal Christ and the Historical Jesus". It sounds more like "The Eternal Christ and the Philosophers" to me. So given that title, I conclude that Stephen Tong didn't know what he was lecturing on. And listening to someone lecturing on something he is not good at for 4.5 hours is, believe me, exhausting). So I need some fresh air, breathe in some revolution.
The (Holy?) spirit is strong on this one...
