N.T. Wright is currently my favored theologian. I first encountered his thoughts online at the referenced website, which contains a large number of articles and audio talks. I’ve begun reading the book The Message of Jesus: Two Visions, and find his arguments more compelling than those of Marcus Borg, the co-author. Jack Spong referred to him in his autobiography with a rather off-hand comment that was simply designed to ridicule Wright’s affirmation of a physical resurrection. Yet both Wright and Borg enjoy a friendly dialog around the historical quest, admiring and respecting one another’s work. He is definitely worthy of consideration even by the most hardline liberal thinkers.
