DIlbert- The truth teller.

Maybe change the second frame to:

I try not to judge people by the quality of the theological questions they ask?
 Just a thought but I sometimes feel this is the way it is sometimes...

Mission and Evangelism

In all cases, the church is called to proclaim the good news of Jesus Christ with boldness and to participate in God's mission for fullness of life. It is the mission of the church to reaffirm with courage and persistence the unique and eternal value of each human person as being created in the image of the holy, mighty and immortal God.
(WCC- Mission and Evangelism in Unity #31)

I am currently writing my assignment and wrestling with eels again, trying to combine my placement, and the two modules: mission & evangelism and the prophets. Maybe this is some of the connection...

10 Indispensible books on Ethics?

I have copied a link to andy goodliff's blog 10 indispensable books on ethics. It is something I am looking at myself for next years dissertation. My first book is Bonhoeffer's ethics, and his suggestion off Hauerwas, Wells, O'Donovan and Barth are no surprise but I was interested in Wannenwetsch having met him at the Bonhoeffer conference so I think I will take that up too.

But do you have any other suggestions?

I have added Chris Wright's Old Testament Ethics for the people of God and borrowed Herando De Solto's The Other Path. As I am looking at human rights this is my focus rather than sexuality etc.
