Urban Concerns

By Dr. Nicholas Piotrowski (at www.9marks.org)

“When will it become clear to the geocentrists?”

So asks N. T. Wright in his book Justification, likening those who hold the “old perspective” on Paul’s gospel to anyone who insists that the sun revolves around the earth because that’s what they see looking up in the sky (Justification, 95).

THE COPERNICAN ANGST OF N. T. WRIGHT

In the face of the heliocentric challenge, the geocentrist just shouts louder: “Look there: the sun is moving up, over, and down!” The heliocentrist, of course, is looking at the same evidence that everyone has been looking at for millennia, but he also knows that a new perspective is needed…

Dr. Piotrowski’s goal is to make explicit the manifold glories of God in the gospel of Jesus Christ for the good of the church and the world. To this end he hopes to instill in his students a philosophically consistent hermeneutic to the text of Scripture, and a cultural sensitivity for discerning the spirit of our age. Dr. Piotrowski believes that the Bible contains a unified metanarrative that can be brought to bear on the questions that postmoderns are asking. Courses he teaches include Hermeneutics, New Testament Survey I & II, Systematic Theology I, II & III, Theology of Culture, Apologetics, Greek and Hebrew. Dr. Piotrowski also has a passion for cultural apologetics—the engagement with long-standing cultural and social trends that bear on the broad perception of the plausibility of the gospel. The majority of his work has been done through the Fox Valley Theological Society (www.FVTS.net), of which he is a cofounder. His wife, Cheryl, and their two sons, Silas and Andreas, are excited to participate in what the Lord is doing through Crossroads!
