My favorite author is N.T. Wright, Bishop of Durham England (Church Of England). He helped this doubting thomas of a christian regain some faith (Me). N.T. Wright is considered the leading British New Testament scholar (Even according to Marcus Borg) and is the most well known critic of the Jesus Seminar. His latest book in a series of 5 is almost 800 pages, demonstrating that the best causative force of early christianity is the Bodily resurrection of Jesus. He seems to base his favorite argument on Josephus and Tacitus and Acts 5:33-39. My question however is this. What do Catholics think of N.T. Wright? I know many Evangelicals scholars (William Lane Craig, Ben Wirthington, Craig Blomeberg Etc.) who hang off everything Wright says. So I was curious if there are "Wright Freaks" within the Catholic faith? Since I believe this is my first post, I will say that I am a fromer Catholic (By Birth, Baptism and 1st Communion). After years in Evangelical circles, and a few as a "freelance" christian I am considering returning to the Catholic Faith.
P.S.: I have sorrow and Joy over the Popes passing. Sorrow because I did not get a chance to see this great man and because he made the world a better place and will be missed. However I have joy that I will one day see him, and that he is now with Jesus.
