N.T. Wright on C.S. Lewis

Though several of the blogs that I personally follow have already linked to and mentioned an article in Touchstone Magazine, I thought I should put my own link to the wonderful article of N. T. Wright's interaction with and critique of C. S. Lewis's "Mere Christianity".  (Apparently to be a well-published author you just need two initials for your first name...perhaps its time to become R. L. Wadholm).  :-)  I found Wright's critique to be pointed with regard to Lewis's eschatology and Christology in particular.  To be quite honest, I actually enjoyed Lewis more than Wright's "Simply Christian" (which was dubbed as the "Mere Christianity" for today...or some such thing).  Perhaps I'll have to give them both another read in the near future (though it may need to wait until I'm finally out of school...which may be never... :-).

  1. I have to say, I have two initials in my name, and it has not gotten me well published.
