What I’m Up to…

Not much time to blog lately, but…

I just blurbed the new Paideia commentary on Romans by Frank Matera: a great resource for students.

My review of Jimmy Dunn’s Christianity in the Making, vol. 2 (on Acts and Paul), is in the July issue of Interpretation here.

My response to Markus Bockmuehl on Peter and conversion in the NT is in the 2010 issue of Ex Auditu.

I am editing my Reading Revelation Responsibly.

I am writing the Lund Lectures at North Park Seminary in Chicago on “Re-imagining Justification” (Wed., September 22)

I am writing a paper for the Symposium on Theological Interpretation of Scripture at North Park, which will be discussed Sept 23: “Effecting the New Covenant: A (Not So) New, New Testament Model of the Atonement.”

I am writing my paper for a special international conference at Duke (Oct 7-10) on Revelation, Intertextuality, and Politics. My paper is called “Theological and Hermeneutical Reflections on the Impact History of Revelation.”

So now it is clear why I’m not blogging much!

    All great things. Keep up the good work.

  2. Mike, Good to read about all that you’re doing. I was wondering why I hadn’t seen much new from you recently. Hope you are well.

  3. [...] review of Dunn’s BEGINNING FROM JERUSALEM Dr. Michael J. Gorman has mentioned on his blog a review of J.D.G. Dunn’s Beginning from Jerusalem. I was happy to discover that [...]

    Thanks, Andy, Chris, and Nijay. Hope you are all well. Now I’m adding vacation into the mix—to France, however!

    Hi, Mike,
    Ony by the grace of our crucified Lord that you are able to do all that you are doing–whew (a joyful whew)! Only by his grace! It’s good to hear you are doing well. Enjoy your time in France.

    I meant “only.” Let’s try it again.

    Only by the grace of our crucified Lord that you are able to do all that you are doing–whew (a joyful whew)! Only by his grace! It’s good to hear you are doing well. Enjoy your time in France.

    And when do you have time to eat and sleep?

    Thank you for your ministry!

    Thanks for the updates, and the thought-provoking comments. I have just waded through the downloads from the NT Wright Conference at Wheaton, and am appreciating your blog posts about them from a while back. A question: Do you know if your upcoming papers North Park (on justification and the atonement) will be made available for the wider public?

  9. Trey Palmisano says:

    Sounds like a lot. God bless!

  10. MJG says:

    Thanks, all. Back from vacation—and plenty of sleep, as well as fun.

    Greg: God willing, the justification papers are going into a book, with one of them, the one on justice, scheduled for a journal first (the first issue of the Journal for the Study of Paul and His Letters—early 2011, I think). The atonement paper will be in the 2010 issue of the journal Ex Auditu, which is only published annually,

  11. wow, keeping busy during the summer. that’s great. your Duke paper seems especially intriguing.

  12. MJG says:


    thanks for stopping by. The Duke conference will be a lot of fun, with Richard Hays and Tom Wright among others.

  13. Luke says:

    Well, I’m still awaiting the Bibleworks review you promised a looooonnnnggg time ago!

    By the way, I can’t wait to read your Revelation book. It seems a lot of good books on the Apocalypse have come out lately (DeSilva, Kraybill, Resseguie, etc.)…not a one of them from the Zionist perspective. Hopefully that’s a sign of good things to come!

  14. MJG says:


    Yeah, that Bibleworks thing got postponed due to other pressing matters. I’ve barely used it.

    DeSilva, Kraybill, and Resseguie are all excellent books.

    When will the Revelation book be out?
