"Every step towards a de-Judaized Jesus is a step away from Scripture, away from Christian wisdom, and out into the world of . . . yes, Plato and the rest, which is of course where Lewis partly lived. If you don’t put Jesus in his proper context, you will inevitably put him in a different one, where he, his message, and his achievement will be considerably distorted."
Thanks Tom for this keen insight, and Mike for the link :)

I think NT Wright is wrong about Lewis on many levels. Most importantly, he misses the point of Mere Christianity. It is not a book of Christian doctrine, but a book of apologetics. And it is the best book on apologetics ever written. Many others have have tried to write a better one, thinking they had better arguments, but they usually fail. I guarantee you that in another 50 years, it will continue to be read. (unlike the new book NT Wright is promoting ( Simply Christian) as an alternative to Lewis.)
