Those who through the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ have escaped the pollutions of this world, according to the words of Peter [2 Peter 2:20], and are not willing to become again entangled therein, ought not to be reckoned as obstinate but as firm in their faith, being unwilling to withdraw from the sacred commands that have been given unto them. — Huldrych Zwingli

Tom Wright (he goes by Tom when he writes pop stuff and by NT when it’s more academic because NT reminds you of the New Testament and he likes that association) has published another book which is the same book he’s always written but with a new cover.
Tom Wright- the Vivaldi of New Testament scholars: when you’ve heard one composition you have literally heard them all.
A South Carolina teenager is suspected of opening fire at an elementary school playground, wounding two students and a teacher — just one minute after placing a teary phone call that led to the discovery of his father’s body at a nearby home.
Anderson County Sheriff’s Office Captain Garland Major told reporters he did not know the relationship between the shooter and those wounded at the school.
Authorities said the suspect was home-schooled and called his grandmother who went to his home and found the boy’s father had been shot.
“She could not make out what he was saying because he was crying and upset and so they went to the house … and that’s when she discovered her son and called 911,” coroner Greg Shore told a news conference on Wednesday night.
Immediately after the shooting, armed officers guarded students as they were evacuated from the school and taken by bus to a nearby church, local media said. Television images showed police swarming the school, with some officers on the roof while others moved around the building.
Guns, guns, guns everywhere. This one can’t be blamed on school bullying or any of the usual reasons. Evidently this shooter didn’t even know the kids he shot and they didn’t know him because he didn’t go to school.
