N T Wright in Dublin
Tomorrow evening a certain ex-Bishop singer called Prof Tom Wright will be giving the EAI annual C S Lewis Lecture on God in the Dock – What Place Now For The Christian Faith In Public Life?
The title being a nice link back to Lewis’s own God in the Dock updated to 2011.
I caught him being interviewed by George Hook on ‘The Right Hook’ radio show on the way home on the train. Impressive that he has done his homework about the particularities of the Irish discussion on faith and the public square. He was well up with Enda Kenny’s
rant attack on the Pope and the Catholic Church and acutely aware of not trying to defend the indefensible, while taking opportunity to actually talk about what the Christian faith is ….
Your faithful reporter will be there …
