Jo-Ann Badley asks whether N. T. Wright’s historical method can be foundational for his eschatological vision.
Jo-Ann Badley is dean of theology at Ambrose University in Calgary, Alberta. She has studied and taught New Testament and hermeneutics for thirty years, reading and writing about what it means to read the Bible for Christian life and practice. She is actively involved in ecumenical dialogue. When she is not working, she likes to weave, walk, and read biographies.
Jo-Ann Badley and Stephanie Neill propose that the current interest in food in North American culture redresses cultural patterns of detachment in ways consonant with New Testament practices of communion, calling us to gratitude and recognition of the relational character of human living.
