N.T. Wright is a wonderful Episcopalian bishop (yes there is such a thing). I don’t have time to comment on it now, but he’s just written a book called Surprised by Hope which Scot McKnight over at Jesus Creed has been discussing. Someone there linked to this wonderful interview with Rev. Wright in Time magazine.
In his book Wright is looking at how over time, we’ve moved away from the ancient understanding of resurrection, heaven and the after life and substituted our own ideas. Like I said, I don’t have time to get into it now, but you should take a look at the interview. Excellent, excellent stuff.
