Tom Wright on Acts

Maybe when I grow up I'll be able to write half as well as Tom Wright. In this piece (link is in the title) Wright summarizes the claim of the Book of Acts as "Jesus is Lord and Caesar Isn't" - addressed to both a Jewish audience (which offers them hope and deliverance) and to a pagan audience - your pursuit of Mammon (money), Aphrodite (sex) and Mars (war) will destroy you. If you're United Methodist like I am, try reading "Methodist" each time he writes "Anglican."
