N. T. Wright in Brisbane

The Bishop of Durham, N. T. Wright, is currently on his first lecture tour in Australia. Fortunately, although we Protestants were slow to act, the Roman Catholic Archbishop of Brisbane has kindly persuaded Wright to visit Brisbane as well.

So he’ll be here in Brisbane for two full-day seminars on Friday 31 March and Saturday 1 April. On Friday his topic will be “Jesus’ Mission,” and on Saturday it will be “Christian Mission in a Postmodern World.” I have the greatest respect for Wright’s scholarship (in spite of my loyalty to Bultmann), and I’ll be going along on Friday to hear him talk about the historical Jesus. I’ll be sure to post something about the seminar afterwards.

If you’re in the Brisbane area and you’d like to come along, then you need to register by 24 March (see the details here).

I met him in 1999 at the AAR/SBL in Boston, not long after I had read volume one of his series.

Wish that I were in Brisbane...

I saw Wright in Charlotte, North Carolina back in 1999 (while I was in seminary). He spoke on the resurrection (wonderful lecture) and was quite amiable one on one.

I wish I could go with you to see him.

I suffered his waffle in about 1999 when he came down here ... he had a very interesting way of avoiding the question by giving very long winded answers. But it's all very entertaining.
