Color me shocked! (Is shocked a color???). He's one of the most influential NT scholars on the planet. And he has a collection of essays in Englishhttp://www.powells.com/cgi-bin/biblio?inkey=1-0814658350-2You can also see his list of publications by searching his name at www.internetbookshop.itThe best source of books in Italian anywhere. Fast, accurate, and inexpensive. You can get a 500 page book for $30 and you would pay over $5990 for the same size volume at Brill. (that last bit is an exaggeration, barely, but the rest is 100% on the money).
*Feels hopelessly embarrassed about being a NT doctoral student with such gaps in knowledge. Knows the truth is finally revealed*One of the most influential scholars on the planet?? |>provoke Jim mode|< Surely not. His surname isn't Wright.Thanks for the link, though. It turns out that Tübingen library does stock this book, so I'll pick it up tomorrow. Rainer Riesner lent me his copy of a Penna book with the small problem that it was all Italian i.e. gobbledygook to me. I'd read he'd written some helpful passages on Pauline 'mysticism'. Do you know anything about that?
Isn't he also the former President of the European Commission?
wright? who's that?????no- i haven't seen his mysticism book as i am personally opposed to it. (begin wicked mode) it leads to cathey-ism, a 21st century heresy which makes one prone to wildness.;-)(/end wicked mode)
Well, I was making a lame joke about Romano Prodi, former Preseident of the European Commission, whose name just slightly resembles Romano Penna's, if you are not paying very much attention and have had a couple of glasses of the good stuff.
Jim is right about Penna. I have his works in English. Paid $12 for the two volumes.
Thanks Nelmezzo! I haden't had anything to drink so, alas, my mind was far too sober!Ahh, Jim. That old Cathey-ism problem eh! I've been rather enjoying watching the latest 'debate' unfold!
So, what's the difference between Catheyism and Catharism?But seriously, what is the debate? Who is Cathey?
Nelmezzo, if you go to Jim's blog you'll find out!

I am New Testament Tutor for St Mellitus College and St Paul's Theological Centre, London. Less well known is that I am also the original writer of the now famous song “Beans, beans, good for your heart…”, and inventor of the “you must have fallen out of the stupid/ugly tree” repertoire of insults. I am the main proponent of the Human Faecal Matter for Brains Opening in chess (actually not what I wanted to call my brilliant and original opening Knight manoeuvre 1.Na3, 2.Nc1), and I also claim to have independently discovered the haiku™ poetry form (© Copyright Chris Tilling 2007) without any help from the Japs. My blog, Chrisendom, is primarily occupied with biblical and theological themes – especially those Apostle Paul shaped, but I try as best as I can to squeeze in a decent amount of inappropriate baloney on the way.
