Peter J. Gomes

Not much time to write, but wanted to share: I'm currently attending the Tipple-Vosburgh lectures at Drew Theological School, and last night had the opportunity to hear Peter Gomes speak. Aside from being funny and friendly, he was also quite brilliant!! He spoke for about an hour and was captivating. He talked about a number of things related to our theme "The Bible as Weapon /as Wisdom", and he made excellent points. One things he said: the Bible interprets our culture. And liberals have let conservatives have charge of the Bible, and thus, given them charge of interpreting the culture. Should you get the chance to hear him speak, don't pass it up! (He also directed the seminary choir in the Hallelujah chorus - spontaneously...)
