Tripp and I had a great visit with Bishop Tom, and the episode is destined to become a Homebrewed classic.

In case he needs an introduction, NT Wright is the Bishop of Durham for the Church of England, leading New Testament scholar, and has been featured on ABC News, Dateline, and the Colbert Report, but today he receives the famous ‘Homebrewed bump.’

Bishop Tom tells us about his experience as Bishop of Durham, and we discussed his new book, After You Believe, on Christian virtue. He even humored us when we threw out names of New Testament scholars and theologians he has interacted with, and asked him to respond however he wants.

In other news, a devoted listener we share with the Nick & Josh Podcast once prophesied that whoever gets both Walter Brueggemann and NT Wright as guests will ultimately rule the theological podcast universe. Mission accomplished.

Books by NT Wright:

Simply Christian
Surprised by Hope
After You Believe

The Challenge of Jesus
The Meaning of Jesus (co-authored with Marcus Borg)

The Christian Origins Series
