N. T. “Tom” Wright

Nicholas Thomas “Tom” Wright (born 1 December 1948) is a leading New Testament scholar and retired Anglican bishop. In academia, he is published as N. T. Wright, but otherwise tends to be known as Tom Wright. Between 2003 and his retirement in 2010, he was the Bishop of Durham. He is now Research Professor of New Testament and Early Christianity at St Mary’s College in the University of St Andrews in Scotland.

Among modern New Testament scholars, Wright is an important proponent of traditional views on theological matters including Christ’s bodily resurrection and second coming. He has criticised the idea of a literal rapture, co-authored a book with his friend Marcus Borg, a widely known voice of liberal Christianity, and is associated with the Open Evangelical movement and New Perspective on Paul, both of which are seen as controversial in many conservative Protestant evangelical circles.  (Wikipedia)

I wondered why Tom Wright had retired from the very prestigious position as a bishop of the Church of England (in fact, the fourth in authority- after the two archbishops and the bishop of London) to be a university professor. In collating his lectures I discovered why. I have so far collected over 30 of his lectures here and there are still more to do. Thus, he has seemingly more influence in his professorial- writer- lecturer role than he had as bishop. (B. T.)
