Our task as image-bearing, God-loving, Christ-shaped, Spirit-filled Christians, following Christ and shaping our world, is to announce redemption to a world that has discovered its fallenness, to announce healing to a world that has discovered its brokenness, to proclaim love and trust to a world that knows only exploitation, fear and suspicion…The gospel of Jesus points us and indeed urges us to be at the leading edge of the whole culture, articulating in story and music and art and philosophy and education and poetry and politics and theology and even–heaven help us–Biblical studies, a worldview that will mount the historically-rooted Christian challenge to both modernity and postmodernity, leading the way…with joy and humor and gentleness and good judgment and true wisdom. I believe if we face the question, “if not now, then when?” if we are grasped by this vision we may also hear the question, “if not us, then who?” And if the gospel of Jesus is not the key to this task, then what is?” –N. T. Wright
Hold onto your seats. This is going to be awesome. On the evening of Monday, May 7th, the Rabbit Room will host something of a micro-Hutchmoot. Will there be music? Yes. We’ll have as many of the Square Pegs as we can round up. Will there be food? Yes. Everyone is encouraged to bring an appetizer dish of your favorite sort. Will there be free popcorn and coffee? Of course. Will there be a world-renowned British theologian. Yes, there will be. Is he the author of books like Surprised by Hope and Simply Christian, and will he be addressing the crowd, answering questions, and signing books? Yes, he is, and yes, he will be. Is his name N. T. Wright? Yes indeed.
This is going to be a fun evening, folks. Bishop Wright will read from and discuss his new book, How God Became King, and he’s graciously agreed to answer questions and sign books afterward. And on top of that, you’ll be treated to live music from members of the Square Peg Alliance. If you’d like to join us for this intimate evening, all we’re asking is that you purchase his book from the Rabbit Room store (book still available, event sold out). We’ll be holding the event in the living room at Church of the Redeemer in Nashville so attendance is strictly limited to 50 guests. If you’d like to have your name added to the guest list, click here to buy the book from the store (EVENT SOLD OUT). Your books will be waiting for you at the church when you arrive (or, if you’re local, you can stop by the Rabbit Room office to pick yours up ahead of time). Note that for couples, we’ve provided the option of buying a combination of two different books so that you won’t need to buy two copies of the same title for admission. These seats will not last long. Get your orders in while you can.
