N.T. Wright on the Colbert Report Tonight


N.T. Wright (aka Tom Wright), the Bishop of Durham, and a leading Anglican biblical scholar, will be on the Colbert Report tonight. His recent books include: Surprised by Hope: Rethinking Heaven, the Resurrection, and the Mission of the Church and Simply Christian: Why Christianity Makes Sense.
Hat tip to Dan Porter.

I wonder if Wright told Colbert that Paul wanted to be rescued from his body, or that Paul insisted that Jesus became a spirit.

I wonder if Wright told Colbert that very early converts to Christianity scoffed at the whole idea of God choosing to raise a corpse.

There is a discussion forum about wright at Wright where his arguments for the resurrection get well trashed.
