Simply Jesus

Last Sunday, the First Sunday of Advent, we began reading N.T. Wright’s Simply Jesus:  A New Vision of Who He Was, What He Did, and Why He Matters.  We  typically read a specifically religious book in Advent (which is also the case for Lent).  Wright is a Church of England theologian and bishop; last year we had read his Simply Christian  during Advent.

Typically, we do not stop reading a book abruptly, but given that the previous book, Joseph Epstein’s Essays in Biography, was episodic in structure (a series of biographical essays that are not interconnected), we stopped reading it the Saturday before Advent began.  We were only about two thirds of the way through the book.  I have not decided yet whether the reading of that book has been concluded or merely tabled.  I will decide in the New Year.
