brian walsh e-mailed me yesterday with a link reflecting on the possibility of a post imperial presidency. you may remember brian and sylvia's targums on colossians that i made a worship trick (apologies for the legibility - i must sort that first series out some time!). well they are now working on a commentary on romans and have posted a targum on romans 1 . be warned it is long and full on! in fact i am a bit nervous about posting it while i am in america... i feel like i could get deported and if it is is the first post people read who are at the conference later today what will they think?! but i am going to make it a worship trick anyway - number 44 series 3. i could never write the targum as it is - the challenge is to read and improvise in this way in my own context. it actually reminded me of a couple of asbojesus cartoons - 562 and 563.
[i still want to get a full debate between pete ward and brian walsh or at least the different ways that they come at culture which reared its head as a possibility in the summer...]
