Last Saturday, Michael Duffy castigated Peter Jensen for using the Boyer lectures as a forum to proselytise. Regretfully, I tend to agree. After a wide-ranging first lecture, the second and third could almost be warmed-over sermons. Indeed, PJ seems to be returning to his favourite Sunday themes. Don’t believe me? Try googling his name with Samaritan (a theme of lecture 2), or with "son of man" (a theme of lecture 3). Each returns around 200 hits.
* On a tangential note, this 2001 dispute between Peter Jensen and Tim Costello now merits re-reading.
