N.T. Wright on Christian Essentials

A little while ago over on Clint's blog, he asked who the most influential current North American theologian would turn out to be, and gave a number of choices. I chose "other," not only other theologian, but other continent, and named Bishop of Durham N.T. Wright, (a.k.a. "Bishop Tom," in the current folksy vernacular).

Anyhow, he sure does spend a lot of time in the U.S. of A., giving lectures and speeches, in a fashion that can only be described as apologetic in the Christian sense of the word. The N.T. Wright page links to many lectures, speeches, which are available on the web in mp3 format.

Here is Wright, speaking at a San Francisco CityChurch Open Forum, on his book, Simply Christian: Why Christianity Makes Sense.

I still would like to hear who you think a great North American theologian is, not simply someone who speaks english as their native language and comes here some times to give talks.

Wink.

Hint hint.
