Fun theology fact
N.T. Wright is beloved by many Christians, and many of my conservative friends who say the theory of evolution is a horrific lie, frequently promote his books.
TIME Magazine called Wright “one of the most formidable figures in the world of Christian thought.” (1)
Newsweek labeled him “the world’s leading New Testament scholar.” (2)
Christianity today said “He is the most prolific biblical scholar in a generation. Some say he is the most important apologist for the Christian faith since C. S. Lewis.” (3)
Here is N.T. Wrights view on the evolution of man from other primates:
“The way I see it is that there were many hominids or similar creatures, part of the long slow [evolutionary] process of God’s good creation. And at a particular time God called a particular pair for a particular task: to look after his creation and make it flourish in a whole new way.” (4)
