NT Wright on the Colbert Report Tomorrow

This just in from the man himself:

“Bishop Nicholas Thomas Wright of Durham wants us to take a good look at what we think happens when we die. Is it heaven? Where do we go? His latest book, ‘Surprised by Hope: Rethinking Heaven, the Resurrection, and the Mission of the Church,’ explores Western religious thinking and confusion about the afterlife. The Bishop has served as Canon Theologian of Westminster Abbey and has taught the New Testament for two decades at Cambridge, McGill, and Oxford Universities.” – No Fact Zone (HT: Becky Garrison)

NT Wright, funny? Yes, he had us in stitches at Soularize. If you get Comedy Central, tune in tomorrow night, Thursday June 19 at 11:30 p.m. EST. Otherwise, watch this space and I’ll see if I can’t troll around for some clips…

Stay tuned.

    …he is on, seriously?

    …don’t play around with an olde man’s mind if he isn’t 🙂

    …thanks for the heads up

    …and one more question

    …if you were recommending reading to the pastor of a huge mid-western church who is “finally” talking about becoming a missional church, what are the top five books you would want him to read?

    As far as looking for clips, those without cable can watch The Colbert Report in full streaming goodness at http://www.comedycentral.com/colbertreport/full-episodes/index.jhtml. Episodes are available the day after they air.

    Thanks Jonathan! And yes, Wes, it is real! 🙂 I forgot to include the original smoking-gun-proof link, I apologize: It is here. Let’s tune in tomorrow, shall we?
