N.T. Wright wows Roman Synod

A friend of mine heard N.T. Wright speak in Brisbane, Australia at the invitation of the Catholic Archbishop John Bathersby (I imagine that the local Anglican Archbishop Philip Aspinall would be not be likely the invite the Bishop of Durham since Jack Spong is more his thing). Well, apparently John Barthersby said that for him reading Jesus and the Victory of God was like "meeting Jesus for the first time"! More recently, Wright is impressing the Catholics again this time as a "fraternal delegate" at a gathering of bishops in Rome. Read about it here.

Hi Mike:

Wright actually preached at St John's Cathedral on the Sunday following the lectures.
